Android development with CoreCLR


With the CoreCLR project, Microsoft has released the source to the runtime on GitHub and is welcoming community contributions. Ports to new platforms have already been contributed and officially accepted by the CoreCLR team, including OSX and FreeBSD, and an effort is currently underway, by myself and a few other developers, to produce an Android port. It is expected to be complete by the time Code Camp rolls around.

This topic will cover the process of creating this port and lessons learned along the way, as well as coding topics such as interoperability with the Java/Dalvik side of the system, differences for Windows developers to be aware of, and showcasing actual Android CLR development.
