.NET 8 launched with .NET Aspire.

.NET 8 launched with .NET Aspire.

When you create a distributed cloud app, you have a lot of moving parts and technologies to cope with.

You create all kinds of supporting code and configuration to start your services correctly and connect all endpoints together.

You need to find out yourself how to hook everything together, which takes a lot of time and learning.

.NET Aspire tries to fix this, by giving you a way to create services with defaults and auto-configuration, built-in telemetry, and good best practices for all kinds of cloud components.

It’s an interesting attempt to improve in this area and from the first looks, I like it a lot.
