Microsoft & Open Source - a 'brave new world' - ProgSCon 2017
It's a 'brave new world' or 'hell has frozen over' (depending on your point-of-view). Microsoft is the top contributor on GitHub, they have opened-sourced their entire .NET platform and gone cross-platform!
In this talk we will look at what the new 'Open-Source' Microsoft actually looks like, what they've done, how they're doing it and what it all means. From new features to compiler design meetings, from TechEmpower benchmarks to increased community contributions, we will examine it all!
Are Microsoft telling the truth?
There’s only one way to find out!!
async Task<SearchIssuesResult> RunQuery(GitHubClientInfo clientInfo,
string query, int pageSize, int pageNumber)
var issue = new SearchIssuesRequest(query);
issue.SortField = IssueSearchSort.Created;
issue.Order = SortDirection.Ascending;
issue.PerPage = pageSize;
issue.Page = pageNumber;
var result = await clientInfo.Client.Search.SearchIssues(issue);
