I haven’t been exactly active on this blog ever since I got a full time job, really. My full time job recently became open source though, so if anyone is interested in what I’m doing, they can follow me on GitHub.
We’re working there on a cross platform runtime and a native compiler for .NET Core. The project is still in the very early stages, but you can already use it to build a C# Hello World command line program and compile it into a native console app for Windows, OSX, or Linux. The console app you build is a fully native program with no .NET dependencies (the only runtime you need is the C runtime!). It’s lean and launches fast. It’s the thing C# developers have been dreaming about for years.
