It is time to (seriously) think about cross platform development. I recently went searched for Mono…the Linux port of the .NET Framework. Rewind to about four years ago…the implementation was not that extensive, etc., etc. Fast forward back to today….my oh my. I recently downloaded and setup several plugins for VS 2010, the Droid SDK, Samsung Galaxy emulators, etc. I quickly got up and running with creating droid applications for Mono…using C# for Mono. Now mind you I considered using Java and Netbeans (I think I will still do some things in Java just so I can maintain my Java skills) but the ability to hit Linux, Droid, MacOS and iOS are now legitimate possibilities. Over the next few weeks I will post what I did to get up and running with Mono.NET, Android SDK, VS2010, etc. So stay tuned.
