C# Updates for the Absent C# Developer

By Roman Stoffel

It has been a while since I actively developed in C#. I mostly worked with C# and .NET during the 3.0 to 4.5 days and I did async/await work very early on, so I skip over that as well.

In this article, I’ll go over some of the most popular NuGet packages used in ASP.NET Core applications.
