Over the years, it has seemed to me that even the most simple development task feels so heavy with C#. It is not the language; it is the complete development experience. It rather feels sad. Even for the simplest console app, we have to open Visual Studio, create a project, select project type, etc. Click, click, click. We really just want to play around with some new feature, or we might have created some brilliant idea and want to make a small spike. We get tired before we ever had the chance to write a line of code.

Lightweight development is just not an option for .Net developers. This has been reserved for NodeJS, Python, Ruby, etc. Until now…

ScriptCs is pure C# code, without IDE requirement, without a project, without classes, without designer files, without dlls, and without compiling. Still maintaining the power of C# and NuGet.

In this talk we’ll cover the basics, and show-off some powerful applications of ScriptCs.
