TOP 20 SOCIAL INFLUENCERS IN .NET DEVELOPMENT

For over 20 years BASTA! is the leading and independent conference for Microsoft-Technologies and JavaScript. BASTA! enables, with his competent offers about C#, .NET-Framework and web technologies, developers and software-engineers to keep up with recent developments. In line with this, BASTA! presents to you the Top 20 Social Influencer in these areas.

BASTA! 2017 – TOP 20 Influencers

The .NET, Windows & Open Innovation Conference BASTA! proudly presents the top 20 social influencers regarding the Microsoft and .NET World.

This list was created by analysing thousands of twitter profiles extracting the MozRank and Klout scores which rank both quality and influence. 

If we missed anybody, it has nothing to do with the fact that we don’t think that they are just as important or shareworthy as any person on this list. We ourselves though do believe that such analytical lists do have the right to exist and furthermore we at BASTA! follow the listed speaker on their social channels and enjoy their quality content.

We congratulate everyone who made it on this list. If you click on the name or on the picture of each speaker you will be redirected to their twitter profile and check out the useful information they share every day.

Enjoy!

METHODOLOGY

We first generated a list of one thousand .NET-related Twitter accounts.
To score the account and rank them accordingly, we analyzed their social authority and reach using two key metrics: MozRank and Klout.

Moz Social Authority Score: Social Authority score is composed of:

  1. The retweet rate of users’ last few hundred tweets.
  2. The recency of those tweets.
  3. A retweet-based model trained on user profile data.

Visit this MOZ blog post for more in-depth information.

Klout Score: Klout uses more than 400 signals from eight different networks to update the Klout Score daily. It’s mainly based on the ratio of reactions a user generates compared to the amount of content he shares. Read more at the Klout score blog.

Congratulations to all the influencers who have made it into our Top 20!
