Sharing the stage with Microsoft at Build 2016

Back in November we announced that we would be partnering with Microsoft to make a supported version of .NET available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Since then we’ve been working together to make sure that .NET runs great on RHEL and has the capabilities that enterprise developers require.

Today, at Microsoft Build, we were invited to join Scott Hanselmann on stage where we demonstrated some of that work and showed how the partnership is helping to create a more stable and supportable .NET runtime for Linux. During the session we also showed the latest open source versions of the .NET core, ASP.NET and Entity Framework which are available on GitHub.

On April 12th, we’ll be hosting a behind-the-scenes webinar to walk through the basic concepts and help you build your first .NET app on Linux. For more information on how to register for the webinar and get access to the tools you need, visit

Also, today, we announced that we will be joining the .NET foundation as a member of the technical steering group. Red Hat is proud to be a founding member and we feel that our years of experience with growing and managing open source communities will be a tremendous benefit to the foundation.  As one the of leading contributors to the Linux kernel, we also bring unmatched experience and knowledge that will help ensure .NET is enterprise ready for Linux.

    Do you guys think this is a good move for RedHat? I mean, you’re a direct competitor to Microsoft server-side offerings, and you know what Microsoft thinks about competition, right? Even if this Microsoft were really a new Microsoft, and not just a product of their marketing department, who knows who will be in charge of the company in 5, 10 years. I’m very skeptical and can’t see how RedHat could benefit from this.
