Yeah, Microsoft. They think they still matter, when the developer world has broadened well beyond - what do they call it - Windows, right? It's an app- and service-driven world now, powered by open source technologies, languages, and platforms - and the cloud.
Pretty cool what they're doing with Visual Studio Code, though. Lightweight IDE specifically for modern OSS developers, targeting the languages and platforms THEY prefer? And it's free? Awesome.
Yeah, okay. I wouldn't mind working on THAT. I can help them move outside their old-school Microsoft world; help them shape an experience that will REALLY help them gain some traction with folks like me who don't develop for - remind me, Windows, right?
oh ??? I can't see an x64 build of it. are you talking about the x86-x64 in iso filename ? I'm not sure what that means actually, but it doesn't seems like a x64 editon is there.
actually what he said was: http://joeduffyblog.com/2012/10/30/beware-the-string/That might sound like an oxymoron, but our system can in fact beat the pants off all the popular native programming environments.
.NET Micro Framework team shared some info about a new AOT compiler,very interesting, not sure if relaed though
http://blogs.msdn.com/b/netmfteam/archive/2015/06/30/changing-of-the-guard.aspxAt this point we have the new architecture building applications and the results are very gratifying. The full language support is in, the performance is comparable with or better than C++ options on the platforms we are targeting, and even without all the optimizations in place, the resulting apps are in the 10s of K range.
Joe Duffy hinted that its the AOT part of LLILC
