Multi-Platform Bridge

Hello everybody! I am Fabrício, a Developer here at Object.NET, working on the Bridge.NET project. I am posting this to talk about a LinkedIn article I’ve recently published which has received some excellent feedback from the community.

I felt like I should share with the world the experience I’ve had in the recent efforts adding Linux and OS X support to Bridge.NET. Not just the Bridge experience, but the unexpected general .NET and Microsoft recent adoption of open source and multi-platform support for their products.

How much could your company or idea benefit of supporting other platforms?

In short, there were three interesting factors involved in the process: Mono development status, Microsoft’s new policies towards open source/multi-platform tools, and how unexpectedly close Bridge was from actually being able to run on other operating systems, including other IDEs like the new Visual Studio Code from Microsoft or Xamarin Studio (MonoDevelop) from the Mono community.

Does it sound interesting so far? Please check it out here: Windows vs Linux: is the cold war over?

Comments are welcome, as always!
