Enterprise Tech News: Microsoft And Docker Partnership, Google Flutter Goes Beyond Mobile, Microsoft Launches Visual Studio 2019 & .NET Core 3.0

07 Dec 2018

This tech news roundup features: Microsoft and Docker partners to ease up the packaging and running of cloud-native applications, Google Flutter goes beyond mobile via Project Hummingbird, and Microsoft launches Preview 1 of Visual Studio 2019 and .NET Core 3.0

Microsoft And Docker Partners To Ease Up Packaging And Running Of Cloud-Native Applications


Microsoft and Docker recently announced the launch of their new open-source project, the Cloud Native Application Bundle (CNAB). This joint venture is an outcome of a collaborative approach between Microsoft and the Docker team as a single open-source project. Moreover, it aims to simplify the cloud-native app lifecycle management with the addition of new capabilities to containerized applications.


The CNAB will allow the developers to declare how to package and run the application. It will also help the developer teams to specify how application resources will get deployed across different computing environments for the app, either from a local workstation to public clouds.


Moreover, Microsoft is launching a reference implementation of one of its CNAB client, named Duffle. It will allow the developers to perform the core lifecycle steps (install, upgrade, uninstall), along with the creation of new CNAB bundles by enabling secure code access. Even, Docker is working towards integrating CNAB into its tools.

Google Flutter Goes Beyond Mobile Via Project Hummingbird

Flutter, Google’s toolkit for creating cross-platform applications will go beyond mobile with its Hummingbird project, an experimental web-based implementation of the Flutter runtime environment. With its recent version – 1.0, Hummingbird will focus on the web for Flutter which currently focuses on iOS and Android apps.


Hummingbird will have Dart code, in which all the Flutter applications get written. It compiles the code to JavaScript and it, in turn, enables the successful code execution across modern browsers. It is also considered as the pathway to bring Flutter apps to MacOS and Windows. There is another project in progress for embedding Flutter into native desktop apps.

Visual Studio 2019 encompasses several productivity improvements, enhanced collaboration, and faster tooling elements. The initial public preview will offer a new start window experience to enable developers to code faster, with an increased coding space, AI-powered assistance with IntelliCode, a unique search experience, new refactoring capabilities, along with smarter debugging, and built-in access to Visual Studio Live Share. The UI and UX of Visual Studio also received subtle changes, such as a new product icon, a cleaner blue color theme, with a short title and menu bar.


In March 2017, Microsoft launched Visual Studio 2017 and released its Mac version in May 2017. In June this year, the company announced Visual Studio 2019 for both Windows and Mac. You can install Visual Studio 2019 previews with Visual Studio 2017 alongside. It will enable you to try new functionality without disturbing the current production workflow. Microsoft has promised that the Visual Studio 2019 will not need a significant operating system upgrade. .NET Core 2.2 will have improvements to the runtime, with Windows support for ARM32, and Azure Active Directory for its SQL Client.


Further, it includes improvements like default enabling of tiered compilation, new ASP.NET Core web stack features and more. Microsoft even launched the Preview 1 of .NET Core 3.0, the next generation of the .NET Core platform. It promises significant updates to the cloud, web, IoT, AI/ML, and more.
