What an Open Source .NET Framework Means For You?


In November, Microsoft announced that its new .NET Core offering would be open source - including its framework libraries. Sounds great, right? But what exactly does that mean for your business?

The key significance of an open source .NET framework is that it opens the way for broader cross-platform development. .NET was already able to run on different platforms, such as Linux, iOS and Android, but it previously required different code bases for Windows and Mono implementations. Open source knocks down this barrier.

Open source means .NET frameworks have become more accessible, more frequently updated and open to customer contributions. All of this makes .NET an appealing option for a huge range of projects.
