For the last six years you’ve heard us go on and on about this Roslyn thing and how it’s the platform for the future and would change everything and that we were all-in on it and “it’s going to be great just wait and see”.

On April 3, 2014, Anders Hejlsberg set us on our open source journey when he made the .NET Compiler Platform (aka “Roslyn”) source code public live on stage in San Francisco.
It’s the beginning of a new year! According to Back to the Future Part II, everyone will be riding hoverboards in a couple months (and, let’s be honest, Doc would love the HoloLens). In the meantime, let’s explore the enhancements we’ve made to the Visual Studio debugging experience.
It’s official. We’re moving to GitHub!
We are moving the Roslyn OSS code from CodePlex to GitHub. GitHub has a vibrant open source community that we want to actively be a part of and contribute to. We are also going to take this time to modify our pull request process.
“Lambdas! Lambdas! Lambdas! Lambdas! …”
If you hadn’t heard, Visual Studio 2015 will support the use of lambda expressions in the debugger windows.
We’re all very excited to deliver on this longstanding TOP customer request. When LINQ was introduced in 2008 it was a game changer for the way .NET developers think about and code with data.
C# 6 is the version of C# that ships with VS 2015 Preview. The philosophy behind this version is straightforward: improve simple everyday coding scenarios, without adding much conceptual baggage. The features should make code lighter without making the language heavier.
The Rosetta lander Philae wasn’t the only thing in space last week. Our launch of Visual Studio 2015 Preview and our announcement to open source the full .NET server stack were out of this world. After all, it’s not every day that you can say your work trended higher than Kim Kardashian on Twitter.
Our team has put together a set of short videos to highlight some of our work in Visual Studio 2015 Preview. Check them out to learn more about what’s new in C# and VB, how F# can be good for enterprise,
Download Visual Studio 2015 Preview and review the release notes.
Over the past several years, our team has been hard at work re-implementing the full language stacks for C# and Visual Basic. While this was a long investment, we knew that an improved stack with a cleaner architecture would allow our team to work faster,

If you’ve been reading this blog I’m sure you know by now that the .NET Compiler Platform (code named “Roslyn”) is the next generation of the Visual Basic and C# .NET compilers.
