Microsoft Open Sources More of its ASP.NET Technologies

ZDNet: Microsoft’s Corporate Vice President Scott Guthrie has announced that the company will release more pieces of its ASP.NET development framework under an open source license. Already, the company had open sourced ASP.NET MVC, and now it will make the ASP.NET Web API and ASP.NET Web Pages (a.k.a. “Razor”) available under the Apache 2.0 license.

“We will also for the first time allow developers outside of Microsoft to submit patches and code contributions that the Microsoft development team will review for potential inclusion in the products,” blogged Guthrie. “We announced a similar open development approach with the Windows Azure SDK last December, and have found it to be a great way to build an even tighter feedback loop with developers – and ultimately deliver even better products as a result.”

Guthrie added that “the same Microsoft developers that build them today” will continue to work on the ASP.NET products, and Microsoft’s CodePlex site will host the code for the projects.
