InfoQ: dotnet news articles for April - 2024, by me.

Hi there 👋

As you know or don't know. I write for InfoQ, and I write a couple of news coverage articles per month.

I am part of the .NET Content editors' team and each month; we write and cover new and exciting stuff in the #dotnet development world.

Last month, April 2024, I wrote a couple of news articles. Maybe if you missed those topics or want to read more about the news from the .NET world, the URLs and short descriptions to the news items can be found in the list below:
