We were designed from the start as an independent forum to foster open development and collaboration across open source technologies for .NET. Our goal is to strengthen the .NET ecosystem through openness, rapid innovation, and community participation.
.NET is bigger than just Microsoft and we want to see the platform survive for another 20 years – in the open. We want to collaborate with industry partners that will innovate with the community.
We do this by supporting .NET open source projects backed by corporate sponsors and individuals alike. We help projects stay focused on producing high-quality software without the legal and administrative distractions and overhead so they can focus on helping contributors and writing code.
