About



By contributing with a donation you'll be helping .NET nanoFramework project. The funds are mostly intended to be used to:

  • Pay for infrastructure costs.
  • Develop public relation actions to get the project known.
  • Support part/full-time maintainers: most team members contribute in their spare time and being able to focus on work would go well with less burnout and a sustainable future for the project.
  • Produce documentation, tutorials and other content to help developers to use the framework and illustrate common tasks and how to use it.
  • Organize events to demo the project, it’s potential and how people can use it for commercial projects, hobby and learning coding and electronics.

.NET nanoFramework is a free and open-source platform that enables the writing of managed code applications for constrained embedded devices. It is suitable for many types of projects including IoT sensors, wearables, academic proof of concept, robotics, hobbyist/makers creations or even complex industrial equipment. It makes the development for such platforms easier, faster and less costly by giving embedded developers access to modern technologies and tools used by desktop application developers.

Developers can harness the powerful and familiar Microsoft Visual Studio IDE and their .NET C# knowledge to quickly write code without having to worry about the low-level hardware intricacies of a microcontroller. Desktop .NET developers will feel “at home” and are able to use their skills in embedded systems development, enlarging the pool of qualified embedded developers.

It includes a reduced version of the .NET Common Language Runtime (CLR) and features a subset of the .NET base class libraries along with the most common APIs included in .NET IoT allowing code reuse from .NET IoT applications, thousands of code examples and open source projects. Using Microsoft Visual Studio, a developer can deploy and debug the code directly on real hardware.
