Hello VB.NET World !

I am an ardent Open Source enthusiast and an avid Mono hacker.

I had earlier worked on Mono's VB.NET compiler - mbas.

Recently, I have embarked on an initiative to build a VB.NET compiler "entirely from scratch". The initial work has been imported as a new tree - mcs/bmcs in to Mono's repository. Here is the posting from Miguel announcing this initiative.

My goal is to nurture bmcs and grow it as a de facto Open Source compiler for the VB.NET language.

You would get to hear from me on a regular basis through this column.
