DNN Has Joined the .NET Foundation

As a pioneer in open source technologies on .NET, DNN has a long history with Microsoft and the world of Open Source Software (OSS). DNN was one of the first OSS solutions built on Microsoft technology and open source has been and always will be at the core of what we do and who we are.

A few years ago Microsoft created the .NET Foundation with projects like DNN in mind.

What is the .NET Foundation
.NET Foundation LogoThe .NET Foundation is an independent organization, incorporated on March 31st, 2014 by Microsoft, to improve open-source software development and collaboration around the .NET Framework. The goal of the .NET Foundation is to foster open source development and collaboration around the .NET ecosystem. It aims to strengthen the future of the .NET ecosystem by promoting openness and community participation. If you are an open source solution built on Microsoft technology your project should be a part of the .NET Foundation.

If you weren’t watching Scott Hunter’s presentation at Connect this morning, we are excited to announce that DNN has been accepted into the .NET Foundation!

What does this mean for DNN?
Since the acquisition of DNN Corp by ESW Capital there has been a lot of positive energy and momentum in our ecosystem. Joining the .NET Foundation is another step in the right direction for DNN and our community. It is symbolic in that it reinforces our commitment to open source, but there are also meaningful benefits and resources for our community.

The .NET Foundation advocates for the needs of open source developers, can provide administration and support as needed, offers project guidance and mentoring, assistance with IP and legal, marketing and communications resources, financial support, and a long list of technical support services which you can read about in-depth on the .NET Foundation website.

More Goodness to Come
There are nothing but positives to come from being a member of the .NET Foundation and over time we should gain exposure and the resources provided by the .NET Foundation will only assist us moving forward.

These are indeed exciting times for the DNN ecosystem, community, and project. We promised openness, transparency, and action and being part of the .NET Foundation is just another outward sign of promises being kept.

Does it mean, there will be no more Evoq (or other paid versions)?

Like WordPress just doesn't have a paid version that is one of the reasons, why it is so popular (because those who are ready-to-spend will pump-in money in opensource version, that will help advance project)
