December is a good time to reminisce and enjoy some of the highlights of the year. We look back at the top 10 Twitter posts for .NET developers in 2017.
With 2017 coming to an end, it’s time to reminisce and look back at the top 10 Twitter posts for .NET developers throughout the year. It would be an understatement to say that 2017 was an eventful year for .NET and Windows developers, especially when we look at all the great additions Microsoft teams brought to the scene, such as the new version of Visual Studio 2017, .NET Core, .NET Standard, XAML Standard and the UWP Community toolkit.
Here are the top 10 .NET and Windows tweets that broke the Internet in 2017. Who do you think got the most attention this year? Scott Hanselman? Scott Allen? Erich Gamma? Let's see!
