    Excellent broadcast and great additions to web forms -- especially DI via Unity (I've made DI work with web forms in the past via SimpleInjector/property injection, but it was always a hack)! 

    With the release of .NET core (and no support for web forms), web forms seems like a dying technology with it's days numbered.  Outside of supporting legacy systems -- it feels like it would be dangerous to invest time into developing new solutions with it.  My .02.  What are your thoughts?
