Microsoft lures non-.NET developers

This article was originally published in VSJ, which is now part of Developer Fusion.
Microsoft would still like more programmers to turn to .NET, and to encourage this, a new online resource has been created. It’s aimed at developers skilled in technologies other than .NET, and explains .NET in their terms using a five-step plan. The emphasis is on creating mixed projects and on bringing .NET into existing projects.

It is also trying to make it better known that some .NET tools and the entire Framework are available for use in commercial projects for free. Currently it is specifically targeted at PHP, Java, JSP and Cold Fusion programmers.
