Independent. Innovative. Always open source.

How we support the community?

Open Source Projects

The .NET Foundation provides several services to support the open source projects in our community and help them grow.


We work not only with Microsoft, but with the broader industry to increase exposure of .NET's capabilities. All our resources are designed to support developers and your projects, and help promote your endeavors with like-minded folks!


The foundation also lists a number of presentations, workshops, e-books and tutorials from the community.
