ASP.NET 5 - the managed runtime you've been waiting for.

This year Microsoft will ship ASP.NET 5, the next generation managed runtime for web frameworks.

In many ways, ASP.NET 5 is the biggest .NET paradigm shift ever.

Come and learn:

• how ASP.NET 5 will let you deploy your own version of the .NET Framework on an application level, regardless of the machine settings

• how it introduces a revolutionary project system where your unit of reference is no longer an assembly, but rather a NuGet package

• how you will be able to run ASP.NET on Windows, Linux and OS X

• how the runtime introduces structural typing which is a novelty in C# nominal typing world

On top of all that, ASP.NET heavily relies on the new Microsoft Roslyn compiler, which, as a result, eliminates the "compile" step from the app development process giving the developers a real Node.js-like experience. And yes, it's all open source.
