The company welcomes Google to the .NET Foundation Technical Steering Group joining Microsoft, Red Hat, JetBrains, Unity, and Samsung to help in bringing greater and better innovation to the .NET platform.
Google has been among the most active contributors, outside Microsoft, to .NET Foundation projects, helping to drive the ECMA Standardization process for C#. The .NET workloads come with first-class support on Google Cloud Platform, which goes on to include the recently announced native integration into the popular Visual Studio IDE on Windows and deep support for PowerShell.
Chris Sells, Lead PM for Google Cloud Developer Tools, states,
“We’re very happy to add .NET support to our list of supported frameworks on Google Cloud Platform. Enterprises moving their existing Windows and .NET workloads to the cloud or those targeting .NET Core can find what they need to build great apps for Google Cloud Platform.”
In June 2016, Microsoft announced that Samsung had joined the TSG. They had been focusing on ARM support in .NET Core and now, we are presented with the first preview release of .NET Core support for Tizen operating system, along with their Visual Studio Tools for Tizen.
Tizen is an open source operating system which is based on Linux, supported by the Linux Foundation, and open to all developers. Tizen powers around 50 million Samsung devices, which include Smart TVs, wearables, smartphones, as well as home appliances. And now, Samsung has gone on to release the first preview of Visual Studio Tools for Tizen, which goes on to support mobile application development with device emulators as well as extension to Visual Studio with full IntelliSense and debugging capabilities. Microsoft, in its official blog, goes on to state that the Smart TVs, wearables, and other IoT devices will soon be added in the future releases.
Samsung’s Executive Vice President and Deputy Head of Software R&D Center, Seung-hwan Cho states,
“Samsung is excited to be a part of the .NET community. .NET has a huge developer base and future potential. Through thoughtful and progressive collaboration, Samsung is expecting to create unique development experiences for both Tizen and C# developers, enriching the Tizen ecosystem.”
