Satya Nadella recently celebrated his first “birthday” as Microsoft CEO and during this stretch of time we have seen many changes in MS strategy.

One of the most surprising was the open source movement that involved some products, like .NET features.

On .NET Blog, we have read interesting news like:

“We’re excited to announce that CoreCLR is now open source on GitHub. CoreCLR is the .NET execution engine in .NET Core, performing functions such as garbage collection and compilation to machine code. .NET Core is a modular implementation of .NET that can be used as the base stack for a wide variety of scenarios, today scaling from console utilities to web apps in the cloud. To learn how .NET Core differs from the .NET Framework, take a look at the Introducing .NET Core blog post.”
