In Singapore, the .NET ecosystem has not been as good as other countries. However, it does not mean there is no .NET developers or enterprises not using .NET. In fact, most of the enterprises or event startups in Singapore are using .NET for their development. Hence, in this community, we would like to group .NET developers and those who wants to learn .NET together to contribute to the .NET ecosystem in Singapore.
