#MSBUILD – 1st #OpenSource, now also Cross-Platform ;)


While I’m still learning Xamarin and BLE, I’ll put this on pause today and share a bit of general information.

A few months ago, in March, the MSBuild product team decided to share the product on GitHub under an Open Source model. Today the product team, gives another great step forward to announce that they are working on a cross-platform version of MSBuild. A few years ago the idea to compile a .net assembly under Linux or MAC it would be kind of crazy; in a couple of months it will be a couple of command line actions.

Now that MSBuild is public, we can see the work on it. In the picture below you can see the number of Commits in March when the product was launched and how it has worked for August in the same to prepare for this major change. It is also interesting to comment that there are more than 20 people who have worked with the project, several open bugs, and much of a Pull Request on the project.
