About this Episode

Can you tell by the title that this is going to be another two part episode :) Jon has found some ingenious ways to write C# code that was never intended but you wouldn’t also consider to be ‘bugs’. We also dig into time again and how weird and wonderful it is. Jon is an engineer at Google and has created a .NET Functions Framework that allow you to run .NET code on Google Cloud Functions. We do a deep dive into how it works and some of the fun Jon had in writing the framework. We hope you have as much fun listening to our talk with Jon as we did as we did in recording it.
