About the Host

Jamie (@podcasterJay)

Jamie Taylor is a Microsoft MVP for Developer Technologies, podcaster, mentor, and consultant with over 14 years of experience in the software development industry.

Jamie’s passion for technology began early on, and he has been pursuing it ever since. He started his career as a software developer, working on a variety of projects that included web applications, desktop applications, and mobile apps. Over time, he honed his skills and became an expert in .NET development, earning him the prestigious Microsoft MVP award for developer technologies.

Along with his work as a developer, Jamie is also a successful podcaster, hosting three popular podcasts, two of which are about software development and modern .NET. His podcasts have become a go-to resource for developers looking to stay up-to-date on the latest trends and best practices in the industry.

Jamie is also deeply committed to giving back to the community. He offers mentoring to developers and apprenticeships to students, and has consulted with colleges and the Department for Education on computer science curricula. He is passionate about helping others succeed in the industry and is always looking for new ways to support and uplift his colleagues.

Jamie’s responsibilities with regards to the podcast are:

It was created in order to help spread knowledge about Microsoft’s .NET technologies via interviews with developers and maintainers of applications and systems created with those technologies.

In the first season, Jamie worked on post-production duties (editing, mastering, etc.). Starting with season two, RJJ Software have provided their podcasting services to the show. You can learn more about their services here.

.NET is a large set of technologies which are designed to allow developers to create applications and services in both the C# (read: “See Sharp”) and F# (read: “Eff Sharp”) programming languages. It can be used to create application types including, but not limited to:

All of the .NET technologies are varied and simple to pick up, but can be difficult to master. Because of this, Jamie wanted to reach out to his developer friends and prominent members of the community in order to have them explain what they are building and maintaining with those technologies, and what they are.

Guests are challenged to explain the technologies and how they have used them in order to build and maintain the applications and services that they have create with them.

About The Audience

The podcast is aimed at developers at all stages of their career and Tech Leads who are looking to learn more about what the different .NET technologies are, and what they can be used to create.

Although the podcast is aimed at developers and other tech workers, it is approachable by learners or listeners who are new to development or Microsoft technologies. Each technology is introduced via examples of the applications and system that have been built with those technologies.

The majority of episode downloads are from US-based IP addresses (25%), with the UK (15%) and Canada (7%) being the next two countries.

The audience is developers, software architects, or development managers - based on a survey of a subset of listeners, and direct feedback that we receive via Twitter and Slack group. The slack group’s members are fans of the show and a small number of previous guests, and the shows twitter account (@dotnetcoreshow) has 3,864 followers (as of May 11th, 2023) and the majority of the followers identify as “.NET Developer” (or similar) in their twitter bios.

The majority of subscribers to the show are looking to find out more information on all .NET related technologies, not just specifically .NET Core. Again, based on the respondents to a listener survey.

Reviews of the Show

Podchaser Reviews

This is a great show and very, very enjoyable. Besides the excellent choice of guests and topics, most remarkable is Jamie’s (the host) ability to show his genuine curiosity about his interview partners and what they have to say. It’s very contagious. I’ve listened to topics that won’t cross my mind, and I don’t regret it. He has done a great job, and it is my to be a Patreon.

Thanks for this amazing podcast.
Ton of information from a host that truly loves the subject.

Both the longer interview style episodes, as well as the shorter “here’s a thing you may not know about”/“feature overview” episodes are great! .net core being an emerging technology, it’s nice having a podcast dedicated to it :)

Love this show, fantastic content and the host is thorough and entertaining. 5 Thumbs up!

…errr, 2 - I suppose. I only have 2 thumbs to put up. Sorry for the waffle!

"Great"

"Good listen"

I have been listening since I hear it was coming out on the Coding Blocks podcast. It always has great content and interesting topics. You can tell Jamie geeks out about the content sometimes but I think it just draws you in more. Some of the information I learned on this podcast has made me an avid promoter of .net core and I have used it to convince my employer to let me write our new apps in .net core.

"The Best .NET Core Podcast out there!"

Okay, so the name is really a bit of a joke given this is THE .NET Core Podcast, but jokes aside, I love this podcast. The host really manages to get some good talks about topics I care to learn about. I’m hoping to dive deep enough into PowerShell Core to have enough talking points to get an interview myself cough. Give the show a listen, if you live in the .NET world, you’ll absolutely enjoy it!

"If you do .net do yourself a favour and listen to this"

You might be busy with the day job. Writing WPF or supporting an ASP.NET app that hasn’t needed to make the leap. You know the switch to .net core is coming. But when is it coming for you. This podcast is great to get your feet wet without getting into the weeds that frustrates so many of us that are busy. #recommended.
