QuickVB Goes Open Source!
Yesterday we published a copy of a fun “Roslyn”-powered retro editor for Visual Basic called QuickVB in honor of the 50th birthday of BASIC. We thought this was a neat application to showcase our love of BASIC but since then we’ve realized that it’s also a great example of how to put the power of the .NET Compiler Platform (“Roslyn”) APIs to use.
In the spirit of openness we’ve decided to open source QuickVB as a sample project on CodePlex so that others may tinker with it and learn from it.
