The .NET Language Strategy

Mads Torgersen. .Net Blog. 2017-02-01.
I am constantly aware of the enormous impact our language investments have on so many people’s daily lives. Our languages are a huge strength of the .NET platform, and a primary factor in people choosing to bet on it – and stay on it.
I’ve been here on the .NET languages team at Microsoft for more than a decade, and I’ve always seen us have developers’ interests first and foremost in our minds as we moved the languages forward. The open source revolution (of not just the .NET languages but the whole .NET stack) has improved the conversation dramatically, and – I think – helped us to make better choices. However, we haven’t always been good at sharing how we make those decisions: Our language strategy; the framework for how we think about each of our .NET languages and chart their evolution.
This post is meant to provide that additional context for the principles we use to make decisions for each language. You should consider it as guidance, not as a roadmap.
