scriptcs, Adventures In Scripting

A session at .NET Fringe Conference

Monday 13th April, 2015

3:40pm to 4:10pm (PST)

For years I was looking for the holy grail of C# development, being able to code outside of VS and in a text editor. Granted this was further influenced by 4 years of node development where Sublime Text was my tool of choice. This desire for a node-like experience led to scriptcs. With scriptcs you CAN write C#, use Nuget and do it all from outside of an IDE in Sublime Text.

scriptcs is much more than a personal passion project. Early on I joined up with a merry band of coordinators and we decided to take this thing forward. The community response was amazing, we've had tons of forks and contributors. scriptcs is spreading in small companies, enterprises and more. You might even see it in the box of VS one day!

In this talk I'll discuss our adventures in growing the project, working with an amazing and diverse contributor community, and the adventures we enabled with our fun tool.
