An introduction to Spectre.Console

I spoke at the Warsaw .NET User Group (WG .NET) in Poland, about Spectre.Console, an open-source project I've created to create more user friendly and modern terminal applications. "With the rise of cross-platform .NET, we're spending more and more time in the terminal, and while there are a lot of different UI technologies for .NET, the terminal experience has never got the same love and attention. Spectre.Console - a .NET library that makes it easy to create expressive, easy-to-use, and beautiful console applications - is trying to change that."
