.NET 5 preview add-on packages for Optimizely Content and Commerce cloud

Jul 16, 2021  

In preparation for the GTM release of Optimizely Content and Commerce Cloud running on .NET 5 and as part of my commitment to the community I started upgrading some of the more popular community packages I own (based on downloads), namely "Cookie Visitor Group" and "Cookie Drop Block".

This was a learning exercise to familiarise myself with .NET 5 development in Optimizely. Given Microsoft and Optimizely collaborated on parts of the .NET Upgrade Assistant (Preview) it was also an opportunity to try it out. The outcome is  2 x new packages which are .NET 5 compatible.

The beta packages are available to download here for the purposes of testing:
