ASP.NET – Writing Clean Code in ASP.NET Core with Dependency Injection
ASP.NET Core 1.0 is a complete rewrite of ASP.NET, and one of the main goals for this new framework is a more modular design. That is, apps should be able to leverage only those parts of the framework they need, with the framework providing dependencies as they’re requested. Further, developers building apps using ASP.NET Core should be able to leverage this same functionality to keep their apps loosely coupled and modular. With ASP.NET MVC, the ASP.NET team greatly improved the framework’s support for writing loosely coupled code, but it was still very easy to fall into the trap of tight coupling, especially in controller classes.

.NET Compiler Platform – Maximize your Model-View-ViewModel Experience with Roslyn
Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) is a very popular architectural pattern that works perfectly with XAML application platforms such as Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and the Universal Windows Platform (UWP). Architecting an application using MVVM provides, among many others, the benefit of clean separation between the data, the application logic and the UI. This makes applications easier to maintain and test, improves code re-use and enables designers to work against the UI without interacting with the logic or the data. Over the years, a number of libraries, project templates, and frameworks, such as Prism and the MVVM Light Toolkit, have been built to help developers implement MVVM more easily and efficiently. However, in some situations, you can’t rely on external libraries, or you might simply want to be able to implement the pattern quickly while keeping focus on your code.

The future of mobile app development
It is incredible how much has happened since Xamarin joined Microsoft just over a month ago, starting with Scott Guthrie’s Build 2016 announcements that Xamarin is now part of all editions of Visual Studio at no additional charge — from Community to Enterprise — and our plans to open source the Xamarin SDK. It is a dream come true for us to be able to put the power of Xamarin into the hands of all developers.

News from Xamarin Evolve: What’s next for Visual Studio and Xamarin

Less than a month ago, at //BUILD, we announced the integration of Xamarin technology into our Visual Studio product line, furthering our Any Developer, Any App, Any Platform approach and bringing even more power and productivity to the nearly 13 million devs who have already downloaded Visual Studio 2015 and the 10 million who have downloaded Visual Studio Community 2015. This integration provides Visual Studio users (like you :)) great additional value to create beautiful and highly performant native Android, iOS and Windows apps, at no additional cost. The combination of the existing Microsoft product portfolio with Xamarin technology creates an end-to-end solution for every stage of the mobile development lifecycle. We can’t wait to see what you deliver! Read more
