Join us this month as Glenn Block shares with us his latest project scriptcs! In his words...
Have you ever found times where C# development today is too heavy, where you ask yourself...
- Do I really need an IDE?
- Do I really need a solution for this?
- Do I really need a project for this?
- Do I really need a class?
- Do I really need to compile?
- Do I really need to manage dll dependencies?
If you've done any development with dynamic languages like Ruby, Python or node.js the answer is no. But what about C#?
scriptcs is new way to develop C# applications as script. It leverages compiler advancements of Roslyn and combines the power of nuget to offer a low calorie approach to working with C#.
It's great for prototyping, simple scripting or even building simple apps. Not only does it let you write scripted "apps", but it also includes a REPL so you can execute code interactively. You can even debug.
Come to this talk and you'll never have to build that dummy console project again.
