Microsoft’s .NET environment does so many things well, it tempts even many hard-core open source developers. Microsoft has arranged for much of .NET to be standards-based, and there’s now a robust community of open source .NET tool developers. You can build powerful open source .NET software with those tools. This book will show you how.
Open source tools can help you with everything from code editing to source control, unit testing to documentation -- and of course there’s the rapidly evolving Mono implementation of C#, the CLR runtime engine, and class libraries. All that’s covered here. Brian Nantz even offers guidance on mixing open source and Microsoft-proprietary tools without unacceptably limiting your licensing options. If you want to do more with .NET and spend less doing it, this book’s a goldmine. Bill Camarda
