What is new in .NET 6 and the future of .NET

November 2021 marks the release of .NET 6. In this session, I will talk about what is new in the latest version of .NET and what the future will bring for the .NET platform in general. What is the difference between .NET Framework, .NET Core and .NET 6? Expect a number of new features and examples of those features.
