Microsoft's "Roslyn" compiler-as-a-service (CaaS) project has not received much press, and developers haven't heard much about it--yet.

  • For many organizations, moving enterprise applications to the public cloud can be a very attractive proposition, but planning the best way to move your applications is mission–critical. As an alternative to the costly option of re–architecting the application for a cloud environment, you can follow a "lift and shift" model that's significantly cheaper and almost always a lot quicker. In order to have a successful "lift and shift" migration, read this white paper to learn a few rules you should …
