Position available to work with the CLR team on Rotor

Ori Gershony in the Microsoft CLR team recently sent me a link to a job announcement for a position dedicated to working on Rotor, the shared source version of the Microsoft implementation of the ECMA Common Language Infrastructure.  I’ve a soft spot for Rotor, since a while back we released Gyro (warning: page now somewhat stale!) with Andrew Kennedy and Dave Berry, which extended Rotor 1.0 with Generics, and this was the first opportunity we had to get a version of .NET generics out to people in the wider world.  I also greatly enjoyed working on the CLR codebase from 2001 to 2004, since virtual machine implementation is a fascinating area of software development.

So, if you’re a great C++ programmer looking for a great job, then this one could be the one for you!

    I have seen it a couple of month before. What is amazing — the phrase about porting Rotor to be commercial implementation on Unix.

    Very interesting! Is it really a plan to release commercial .NET on Unix by Microsoft?

  2. We are just starting to kick off the hard core planning for the next release of ROTOR, a shared source…
