After years of being not so in focus as a development platform and sometimes even put into the legacy drawer, .NET in its appearance as .NET Core seems to have more than a bright future now!
Microsoft just revealed at its Connect() event in New York that Samsung is going to support .NET Core on Tizen, the companies OS for electronic devices (watches, TVs, IOT, etc.) and Google also joins the party in the name of dotnet foundation (http://dotnetfoundation.org/blog/google-join-tsg).
This is huge, this is awesome, because all of a sudden .NET is back as true a cross-device development platform incorporating all the good stuff Xamarin brought into the company. Not only this, .NET Core is different than .NET, because it is Open Source and has a strong community backing, with over 60% of recent contributions made by 3rd party developers.
The “new Microsoft” does not stop surprising and innovating.
I am looking forward, to see more!
With sails set in this direction, this can be just the beginning.
