So, the pigs have finally learned to fly!

As my good friendo Jose Bencosme said via twitter:

Last week was amazing. I haven’t felt so much excitement coming out from the .Net ecosystem since the early days of the framework back in 2002/2003.

How crazy was it?

  • Microsoft joined the Linux Foundation
  • Samsung & Google joined the .Net Foundation

We we finally have Visual Studio for Mac!!!! Now, sure, for this this is a fork/re-brand/[insert_term_here] of Xamarin Studio, but who cares!. It finally means Microsoft will bring over to Mac (and eventually Linux) the same solid IDE we rely on in Windows.

Who would have thought 10 years ago that we would now have:

  • Visual Studio for Mac
  • SQL Server for Linux
  • Ubuntu Bash (and subsystem) for Windows 10
  • Native mobile apps built with C#

The great part is, that the best is still to come :)

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
