Mono is a comprehensive open source development platform based on the .NET framework that allows developers to build Linux and cross-platform applications with unprecedented productivity. Mono's .NET implementation is based on the ECMA standards for C# and the Common Language Infrastructure.

This session provides an introduction to cross platform development with Mono. Participants will acquire an understanding of the MonoDevelop environment, how to develop web and rich client applications, and how to deploy those applications on multiple platforms using the Mono runtime.

- Introduction to Mono: A review of basic information and status, and a review of cross platform development issues.
- Develop a web service using MonoDevelop: Develop a simple web service using the Mono/C# IDE.
- Create an ASP.NET application and deploy on Linux and Windows: Using MonoDevelop, create a simple ASP.NET application that consumes the web service. Deploy the application on both Linux and Windows.
- Create a Gtk# application and deploy on Linux, Windows, and Macintosh - Finally, create a simple rich client application that accesses a MySQL database and deploy the same code on both Linux, Windows, and Macintosh.
