Sign in to queue


The .NET Micro Framework is an open source platform that enables you to write applications on resource constrained devices that run on a microcontroller with just a few hundred kilobytes of RAM and storage. Developers can use Visual Studio, C#, and .NET knowledge to write embedded applications without having to worry about the intricacies of each microcontroller running on their embedded device. The .NET Micro Framework is open-sourced by Microsoft Open Technologies. This video provides an introduction to the .NET Micro Framework.

    Does the Micro Framework and its templates run in VS 2015?


    MS needed more than 2 years to get it running in VS2013. I hope this has higher priority now.

    I'd worked on implementing vb support for VS a couple of years back but it still gets no mention here.  A shame as VB is definitely a great language to get working on this stuff with.

    Hi MRumpler - yes, we have our priorities straight now.   The Beta that is currently out has provisional support for VS 2015 already.   It is provisional because, while it works now, VS2015 is out in Preview and there may be changes down the road. 

    Hi Skytribe - sorry about that.  Teh VB team were great partners in adding support for VB in NETMF and we should not be leaving that out.
