Mono is an open-source, cross-platform implementation of the .NET framework based on the ECMA standards for C# and the Common Language Infrastructure. With Mono, users can run C# and Visual Basic applications written and compiled in Visual Studio on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X.  This talk will demonstrate how to take advantage of some of the newest features of Mono, including improved support for developing for Mono with Visual Studio, and support for ASP.NET MVC.  We’ll also explore new deployment opportunities Mono brings to .NET developers, including support for building hardware and software appliances on Linux.


Joseph Hill, Novell

Joseph has been active in the Mono community since 2003, and is a contributor to several open source ASP.NET projects.  Professionally, he consulted on development  of .NET applications in financial services, supply chain management, and other industries.  In 2008, Joseph joined Novell to serve as the Product Manager for Mono.
