There’s some exciting news for the ASP.NET community this week on the Visual Studio blog that we wanted to take a moment to point out. Nik Molnar and Anthony van der Hoorn, the creators of Glimpse, have joined Microsoft on the Visual Studio team!
The ASP.NET team have been fans of Glimpse since we first saw it at the Mix 11 Open Source Fest. It’s a great open source debugging and diagnostics tool. Glimpse is similar to the F12 tools built into browsers, but instead it provides insights into server side concerns like route matching, view rendering and database queries. If you’d like to learn more about Glimpse, check out our own Brady Gaster’s interview with the guys on Web Camp TV.
Now that Nik and Anthony are at Microsoft, they will continue their work on Glimpse and web tooling. We’re excited to have them join our ranks, look forward to working directly with them and are excited to see what’s to come.
