How an open source developer transitioned to .Net

Posted by Keith Elder | Posted in .Net, Asp.Net, Open Source, PHP, Programming | Posted on 11-03-2006

For a long time I’ve been wanting to put this together.  A lot of my friends who were open source advocates like myself are perplexed with my transition to what they call the “Dark Side” of development.  Referring of course to Microsoft as the evil empire.  I took some time this morning to finish how and why I migrated from programming mainly in PHP to .Net.  I didn’t want to put this information into a blog post because as I was writing it, it just didn’t feel right so I created an article out of it.  In order to give you the full picture I give some information on my background to cement how firmly planted I was in open source technologies.  Then I give you some of my thoughts on the conversion process.  In the end, I give some advice for others that might be curious as how to make this conversion.
