Jan Schulte wants to give this talk

Working in a different country

With .Net, Microsoft created a new development environment some time ago. For many people, this is just another development environment. But compared to others, it has some specialities which come from the role Microsoft plays as the creator and maintainer in here. There are some cases, where Microsoft did a good job to make developing software easier, but there are also things causing pain. What is so special about this, that one company controls the ecosystem? What does it mean to work with commercial developer tools?

This talk will show, what happens over there, in this other “country”. Where did Microsoft a good job and where did it fail.
