One of the changes Microsoft brought with .NET was to submit C# and theCommon Language Runtime for standardization. As a result, for the first time,people have been able to develop open source tools that can be used withMicrosoft's tools. These open source tools are important because they givedevelopers increased efficiency and flexibility. This is the first book to showhow to use these new tools, including NAnt, NDoc, NUnit, Draco.net,Log4Net, and ASpell.Net. The author is an active member of the open sourcecommunity, and has contributed to several of these projects. He shows how touse all the tools with both Visual Studio .NET and with the Mono Project, theleading Open Source IDE for .NET. This book should appeal equally to .NETdevelopers intersted in what open source tools are available to them, as well asto open source developers who are curious about .NET. Just as Javadevelopers have embraced open source Java tools such as Jakarta, Ant, andJUnit, .NET developers are eager for this information.
