Are you going to have public standups and/or monthly meetings (streamed) once the project is completely open?
I'm a student at Blekinge Tekniska Högskola (BTH) in Karlskrona, Sweden. Specialized in .NET development. C# is my primary programming language of use.
@lepton: They are not giving up WPF.
If you are talking about opensourcing:
WPF is an old codebase, inherently tied to Windows and Microsoft technology, and thus not cross-platform. So I can understand that it isn't an option for them.
Better creating something new based on modern .NET and XAML: async etc. It can be made better.
It would be 100% compatible, not binary compatible - most likely concept-compatible, but what do one expect?
I really like this and I would love to see this being supported for other types of .NET projects (like WPF and console apps) and not only web apps. Especially the use of NuGet as it would make modularity enabled by default.
I have been thinking about the ability to write scripts in C# (.csx) and VB.NET (.vbx). What if you just could run a program that is getting compiled and run directly from source files using Roslyn? "K" Runtime seems to enable that via the Console App project type. Is this something you are looking into?
Nice to see all the innovation happening. I'm looking forward to see and hear more in the future.
Imagine enabling all .NET applications to be dynamic and modular.
What if you just could double-click a ".csx" source file (with directives to other files) and then the app (whether Console, WPF or Web app) automatically launched after "Roslyn" dynamically compiled the app using its own designated runtime (.NET or Mono) on the fly?
That is the future!

I think you guys confuse Xamarin.Forms with the iOS visual designer for Visual Studio and Xamarin Studio which is also new to this release.
Xamarin.Forms UI:s can be defined using a specific XAML-dialect. One can even mix with the platform-specific UI frameworks for more customization.
I want to see more like this one. I would also want to learn more about MVVM best practices.
I'm myself struggeling with building a rather simple solution that loads data into a LongListSelector as it is scrolling. I then want the data to be cached locally by some data service. I don't want to make things complicated - be over-doing it, to say.
How are you guys at Microsoft building such solutions? How is it done in the People hub? I feel like I need a complete reference project for that scenario.

Some people at Microsoft are working on a portable HttpClient. A pre-release can be downloaded via NuGet.

I wish there were a playlist function for series like this.
It would be nice if one could make this work with TF Service.
