Microsoft announced the creation of the Technical Steering Group in the .NET Foundation back in March this year to help open up how technical decisions are made in the .NET platform. Today, Microsoft announced that Samsung is joining this group. Technical Steering Group already includes Red Hat, JetBrains and Unity.
“.NET is a great technology that dramatically boosts developer productivity. Samsung has been contributing to .NET Core on GitHub – especially in the area of ARM support – and we are looking forward to contributing further to the .NET open source community. Samsung is glad to join the .NET Foundation’s Technical Steering Group and help more developers enjoy the benefits of .NET, ” said Hong-Seok Kim, Vice President, Samsung Electronics
Microsoft also highlighted that over half of the contributions to corefx and coreclr come from outside of Microsoft.
