[#OPENSOURCE] Now is #MSBuild time !!! ^_^

Hello!

It was hoped that after the launch of Roslyn, MSBuild will become an Open Source tool. Not so long ago Roslyn was published on Github, and of course >> MSBuild is the next step.

In addition to being “a tool / platform / something else” the release of MSBuild is special for Microsoft. During the last 10 years (or more) MSBuild has been the core platform for compilation of applications in the .Net world.

Since Visual Studio 2005 until today, every project, solution or asset related to Visual Studio was built by MSBuild ;).

I have no accurate statistics, but I’m sure I’ve written more than 200 posts on MSBuild customizations. And of course, Team Foundation Server uses MSBuild for automated build processes so the cycle is complete.

And now that is open source… because we can expect specific versions for Linux or Mac, customization to do to compile other types of platforms, etc.

For example, and this is more a personal guess than a line of work. Now that Android is an element as well integrated within the Microsoft ecosystem, why not be able to use Visual Studio to create native apps for Android? Integrate the environment for compiling Java / Android with MSBuild is not an impossible task 😀

[#OPENSOURCE] Ahora es el turno de #MSBuild

Hola!

Era de esperar que después del lanzamiento de Roslyn, MSBuild se convierta en una herramienta Open Source. No hace mucho tiempo que Roslyn se publicó en Github, y claro MSBuild es el siguiente paso.

Además de ser “una herramienta / plataforma / something más” que MS libera el caso de MSBuild es especial. Durante los últimos 10 años (o más) MSBuild ha sido el core de la plataforma .Net para la compilación de aplicaciones.

Desde Visual Studio 2005 hasta la fecha, cada proyecto, solución o elemento compilado en Visual Studio pasaba por MSBuild.

No tengo estadísticas acertadas, pero estoy seguro de haber escrito más de 200 posts sobre customizaciones sobre MSBuild. Como es de esperar Team Foundation Server utiliza MSBuild para los procesos de compilación automatizados.

Y ahora que es open source … pues podemos esperar versiones específicas para Linux o Mac, customizaciones para poder compilar otro tipos de plataformas, etc.

Por ejemplo, y que quede claro que esto es más un deseo personal que una línea de trabajo. Ahora que Android es un elemento tan bien integrado dentro del ecosistema Microsoft, ¿porque no poder utilizar Visual Studio para crear apps nativas para Android? Integrar el entorno de compilación Java / Android con MSBuild no es una tarea imposible 😀

[#OPENSOURCE] Add #TouchDevelop to the list, thanks #MSFTResearch

Hello!

Now is time for another quick Friday post. Among the MWC 2015 and the Microsoft DotNet Spain Conference, I have less and less time to try new things. One of which they have in the pipeline, to know it much more is TouchDevelop. If, for some strange reason you don’t know it, because the following 103 seconds will help you

Today, through the friends of MS Research, I just found out that TouchDevelop platform has been opened in Open Source mode. If anyone is wanting to take a look, maybe from here a fork can be. Obviously from GitHub.

Indeed, in a short time (a little including TypeScript) got it working “in place” 😉

[#OPENSOURCE] Ahora es el turno de #TouchDevelop, gracias #MSFTResearch

Hola!

Hoy toca otro post de esos rápidos de viernes. Que entre el MWC 2015 y la Microsoft DotNet Spain Conference, me queda cada vez menos tiempo para probar cosas nuevas. Una de las que tengo en el tintero, para conocerla mucho más es TouchDevelop. Si, por algún motivo extraño no lo conoces, pues los siguientes 103 segundos te ayudarán

Hoy, a través de los amigos de MS Research, me acabo de enterar que toda la plataforma de TouchDevelop se ha abierto en modo Open Source. Si alguno anda con ganas de darle un vistazo, pues desde aquí se puede hacer un fork. Obviamente desde GitHub.

Por cierto, en poco tiempo (un poco de TypeScript incluido) ya lo tengo funcionando “en local” 😉

[#GITHUB] With GitHub Student Developer Pack, now you have … #VisualStudio: D #OhYeah

Hello!

I just finish a post where I really appreciate the move of some Microsoft contents to GitHub, and then I found with this killer news from GitHub, specially for students

With your Github Student Developer Pack subscription, you also have access to a license of Visual Studio and all the advantages of the DreamSpark program.

And you also have other benefits such as tools, resource stack in the cloud, etc. Everything needed so that a student can take forward an idea 😀

PS: If you haven’t, take a look at DreamSpark. It is a very important resource that provides Microsoft giving access to software for learning, teaching and research purposes.

Hola!

Pues eso, que no bien termino de escribir un post dando gracias a los amigos de Microsoft por mover contenidos a GitHub, que ya van los de GitHub, y se sacan esto de la manga

Con tu suscripcion de Github Student Developer Pack, también tienes acceso a una licencia de Visual Studio y a todas las ventajas del programa DreamSpark.

Y además, tienes otra pila de beneficios como herramientas, recursos en el cloud, etc. Todo lo necesario para que un estudiante pueda sacar adelante una idea 😀

PD: Si no lo conoces, dale un vistazo a DreamSpark. Es un recurso muy importante que proporciona Microsoft dando acceso a software para fines de aprendizaje, enseñanza e investigación.

[#GITHUB] #Roslyn family will move to #GitHub, one more time thanks #Microsoft!

Hello!

When .Net and Mono “moved” to Open Source, I have to write a post because I think of the type of actions that really demonstrate the commitment of Microsoft to the developers community. Aside from the Open Source stuff, GitHub is the most popular platform used in the developers community, so it makes sense to move all the content. If you want the developers to participate, for sure GitHub will be in a more natural environment. I also wrote about this in this post, where I mentioned as SignalR, Asp.Net and others are on this platform.

Well, this week is Roslyn which moves to GitHub, and in this case from CodePlex. This news we can see directly from the home of the Roslyn in CodePlex site ! And of course, I have to go to the C# team and Visual Basic team blogs to check if the complete family will move.

Visual Basic Team, We’re moving to GitHub!

C# FAQ, We’re moving to GitHub!

Good news! Now just wait for it to begin to give a chance to more and more relevant to StackOverflow about MSDN forums 😀
