A big step from .Net Foundation to make .Net open sourceFeb 09, 2015
The .NET Foundation is an independent organization to foster open development and collaboration around the growing collection of open source technologies for .Net . Microsoft’s comprehensive development framework. It serves as a forum for commercial and community developers alike to strengthen the future of the .NET ecosystem by promoting openness, community participation and rapid innovation. Community engagement through open source foundations has been proven to nurture and advance core technologies that the IT industry relies upon. We found that there was enough momentum around open source .NET to create a separate independent foundation. Developers everywhere are innovating rapidly with the power and flexibility of .NET, and the growing community is in need of a developer forum, a test bed, practices and processes that will strengthen the future of the .NET ecosystem.
