Mono Project This article provides a tour through some Mono programs, along with details about how you can start experimenting with them yourself. Not all of the programs featured here are finished products, but they're all exciting and show off interesting aspects of Mono. Even more Mono applications can be found at GnomeFiles.org: We should add to the list the excellent PolarViewer and SportTracker (they go together), and of course, GCursor#, CSBoardGalaxium Messenger, SkyNET and GLyrics among others like Bless, fewnn, GFax, WoodPusher, CDCollect and Kurush.

job oppurtunities c#,mono (i need a job)

hi

interesting discussion here. first off my english is far from perfect so please bear with me. i'm the typical ms developer. i started with ms access then went over to vb and now i'm at the 3rd quarter in the .net learning curve.

since i didn't have visual studio .net at home i decided to look for OS alternatives. while this quest i've met:

- SharpDevelop (fine IDE for Win Env.)
- mono as alternative runtime
- gtk#

i've still some problems here and there with gtk# but hey i realised that there is a world beyond ms and visual studio and i'm able to write X platform apps with tools developed by openminded/unselfish people.

i've read in another post here that avalon will make windows.forms kind of obsolete. i second that. i think ms is making big steps foward but not every company/shop is willing to invest in new knowledge or simply doesn't need that functionality.

so imho mono has a big chance to be something like the save harbour for ms devs that can live without latest "bells and whistles".

i myself starting to feels so safe that i wanna invest more in mono. i'm indeed looking for a job in the mono enviroment.

i would:

- do it on an apprentice - base.
- move out from switzerland

maybes somebody can help me out where to start.

happy hacking

phil
