.NET Core 3.0 and Windows Desktop Development

Progressive Insurance

WinForms and WPF are two of the most popular .NET application types and are used by millions of developers. .NET Core 3.0 adds support for WinForms and WPF, bringing Windows desktop development to .NET Core. .NET Core has always been about open source, and both frameworks are open source in GitHub with the rest of .NET Core. https://github.com/dotnet/winforms https://github.com/dotnet/wpf Many of the existing WinForms and WPF applications use Entity Framework to access data, so Entity Framework 6 will also be supported on .NET Core alongside Entity Framework Core. https://github.com/aspnet/EntityFramework6 https://github.com/aspnet/EntityFrameworkCore In this session we will discuss why the Desktop platforms are moving to .NET Core and see some examples that have been ported over.
