Join us at the Perth .NET user group, Thurs Oct 6th 5:30pm, where Ben Last will discuss a real world application using C# and Mono. nearmap.com make heavy use of C#, but in a very non-Windows environment. Plenty of people have played with mono as a .NET platform, but there are not that many who have used it in a large-scale, high-traffic, n-tier environment. Hear our story, and find out if mono delivers what it promises.
