 Convention Coverage

Session

Developing with Mono
Edd Dumbill, Principal, Useful Information Company

Track: Emerging Topics
Date: Thursday, 20 October 2005
Time: 10:45 - 11:30
Location: Grand Ballroom

This session, led by one of the authors of the O'Reilly book "Mono: A Developer's Notebook", explains what Mono is, why it's making waves in open source development, and what advantages there are to using it.

Mono is an open source, cross-platform implementation of the .NET development framework. It's based on the Common Language Infrastructure (CLI), standardized by the ECMA standards group and ratified as standards by ISO. Similar to Java, the Mono environment consists of a compiler, virtual machine, and API classes. Although .NET supports many languages, Mono's main compiler focus is on the C# language.

In the talk, Edd Dumbill will cover the ECMA .NET APIs, the native Mono stack of APIs (Gtk# and friends) and the ASP.NET APIs for web applications and web services.
