NETMF "Native", Colin's retirement and more news!
Posted 01 July 2015 - 08:42 AM
Colin and the team in Redmond, in collaboration with community contributors, have been working super-hard this last year and the results so far are very promising.
Today Colin announced his retirement (from Microsoft). Colin has brought Lorenzo Tessiore back as technical lead on the NETMF project, and the team is in a great position to continue innovating with .NET on Cortex-M class devices.
A few highlights from Colin's retirement post:
1. NETMF 4.4 is nearing completion. Stay tuned. Lots of new cool stuff to play with.
2. Officially...there is an AOT (native compiled) version of .NET for Cortex-M devices in the works. This is a second version of .NET for Cortex-class micros which will be even better than the NETMF interpreter for some applications. I don't want to spoil Lorenzo's thunder though, and I'll hold off on talking about this other than to point it out in the post
Please join me in giving Colin a huge "thank you" and virtual hug for all of his years of dedicated service at Microsoft, for making .NET MF a reality for all of us, and for working this last year to drive this really important work with NETMF (for IoT) forward.
Thank you Colin, for everything.

Of course I joun you Chris !
I was honoured to meet Colin at last Microsoft MVP summit but I think that thanks to the open source nature of the .Net MF project, Colin will continue to help the team. He loves so much his son :-)
However, I'm sure that Lorenzo will do a great work !

1. All Netduino 2 and Netduino 3 boards will be getting the upgrade to NETMF 4.4.
2. Netduino 3 was designed with an AOT-compiled version of NETMF in mind. There are pluses and minuses for both AOT and interpreted...but rest assured that we built your shiny new hardware with plans for upgradability
Back to the most important topic: saying thank you to Colin.
