My friend Bo recently pointed me in the direction of a cool great app, it’s “The Open Source Development Environment for .NET”, aka #develop, and what it does is allow you to create .NET applications in a free open-source environment. #develop (short for SharpDevelop) is a free IDE for C#, VB.NET and Boo projects on Microsoft’s .NET platform. It is open-source, and you can download both sourcecode and executables from the sharpdevelop website. For those of you who program in the .NET framework, this is definitely worth a look.

I haven’t made the move to .NET yet, so this might just be the impetus I need!!

Happy Coding!

  1. Thanks for the link! I want to learn .NET but Visual Studio is too expensive, so this is great!

  2. Kris, I was really excited to find this too. I have been holding off on doing much with .NET because I wanted a full development suite and didn’t want to shell out the cash just, so I’m excited to play with this and see how well it works out for me.
