It was April 1st, but the mail was real – I was re-awarded the MVP status for Visual C#. It was about time I replace the stickers on my devices anyway I hope that this year will be filled with more C# development now that Roslyn is officially available.
Speaking of Roslyn, the real shocker was the announcement at last week’s Build conference about Roslyn being open source. Wow, this will have a great impact on open source community in .NET world. If only .NET Native is open source (asking for open source .NET itself is a long shot), that would open the flood gates towards other platforms in no time. Even though everyone claimed .NET is dying or being abandoned just a year ago, at Build we had a chance to see the beautiful future for .NET.
This week I had two sessions at WinDays and NTK about the future of C# and awesome things you can do with Roslyn. Next week I am talking about app to app communication between Windows Phone and Windows Store applications at MS Network. I have to mention that all three conferences are held in beautiful locations in this region: Umag, Bled and Banja Vrućica.
