We are all aware of the Connect(); developer event by Microsoft which is going on in New York. Microsoft has been developing softwares which are mostly focused on .NET. It is no surprise at all that the event is also going to provide a glance of some .NET centric announcements. For future development of the .NET core projects Microsoft has now established .NET foundation, the open source organization.
Microsoft also announced that Google has now become a member of the .NET foundation. The search giant join hands with Red Hat, Unity, Samsung, JetBrains to help Microsoft in order to develop .NET projects.
.NET applications can be deployed by the developers on Google’s Cloud Platform with the help of Windows Server and also more than 200 cloud services are supported by .NET libraries. So the announcement made today may not be that exciting, but it sure is good to find these two companies working together, considering that they compete on so many other levels.
Tizen platform by Samsung now supports .NET and Samsung’s Hong-Seok Kim stated that along with the web framework, they were also looking for a framework and a C API, which is used by the Tizen developers. He also considered .NET to be superior and that they were looking for a framework which had tooling, APIs and also a strong foundation in terms of language support with the open-source community.
In this first release, Samsung mainly targeted to bring .NET to smartphones. They are trying to broaden its Tizen developer ecosystem by making sure that it supports a wide range of devices. Even though it supports devices like watch and TVs currently, they are planning to broaden it more.
