Creating a .NET Core Global Tool In <10 Minutes

Upgrading the "dotnet libyear" CLI tool

Last year, I created a .NET Core CLI tool called dotnet libyear to help keep track of how far behind your apps' dependencies are.

A year before that, I performed a live-coding blind speedrun upgrading this site to .NET Core 1.0 RTM.

Combining these, I now present to you: a blind speedrun of me updating dotnet libyear to a global tool!

You can now download dotnet libyear 2.0 for .NET Core 2.1 by running:

dotnet tool install -g libyear

I've been thinking about the idea of trying more livestreaming lately, partly because the social aspect intrigues me, but also to help show that it's OK to screw things up and not know the answer all the time. What do you think? Let me know on Twitter using the link below!
