Mono, a comprehensive open source development platform is implementation of the .NET development platform on linux. It provides a superior development environment for writing Linux applications with unprecedented productivity of .NET by allowing developers to write rich client, web services and server-side applications and deploy them on Linux, Netware, MacOS and Microsoft Windows.
Mono provides the benefits of the both the world, software developer friendly IDE with SDK and open-source advantage of Zero TCO to businesses.
Though mono is quite in a nascent state, but being a project backed by open source community and Novell, it certainly gains the much needed attention. This is a stable and viable option of software application development and implementation platform.
With the new releases marked for Mono project, and further its compatibility with the Longhorn, considering the DotNet development under Linux is a new and better choice for the enterprise that envision to build solutions which should not be restrictive while considering the option of transiting from Windows to Linux or vice-versa.
To go for Mono does makes a sense for businesses which do not wish to entangle in the Operating system war and want to have the software systems keep delivering for businesses, but this requires a careful and thorough analysis of the application. As not all applications that can be implemented should be implemented in Mono.
What’s a way for a dexterous software Development? The smartest answer is ‘Go Mono!’
e-Zest has taken early lead and joined hands with open source to develop custom .NET applications on Linux using Mono. e-Zest is also helping organisations to migrate and/or co-exist existing .NET applications on Windows platform to Linux using Mono.
e-Zest has carefully studied and considered the effect of the transition of the windows based C# developed projects to be made running on the Linux platform. Of course, there are many parameters like Performance and the choice of the namespaces to be considered while working on this upcoming technology. This cautious approach by e-Zest helps developing the application that can run on Windows as well as Linux platform.
e-Zest has team of experienced software architects, developers, product specialists, consultants as part of e-Zest .NET competency team to handle such assignments.
