Xamarin Parteners with Attachmate to Support Mono

Miguel de Icaza announced today that Xamarin has reached an agreement with the SUSE business unit to support Mono, including MonoTouch and Mono for Android.

This is great news for all parties concerned, particularly the community who have missed the support of the brilliant team who created the technology. The timing is rather fortuitous with the Monospace conference kicking-off on Saturday. I’m sure this news will help make a great conference even greater! See you all in Boston!

The Future of .NET on iOS and Android

Things certainly change fast in this business! After rumors of layoffs at Attachmate last week cast a shadow over the future of Mono, this week brings a new world of bright, shining possibilities. Miguel de Icaza just announced the launch of Xamarin, a brand new venture to carry MonoTouch and Mono for Andriod, (or as Miguel has re-branded them .NET for iOS and .NET for Android), into the future.

So now that we know the rumors were actually true, it’s apparent that Attachmate has no clue what they were losing when they laid off the entire Mono team. It is great to hear that funding has been secured to keep the team together, and Miguel is seeking additional investors. I, for one, will be waiting anxiously to see what investors answer the call.
