  • Friends don’t let friends use AutoMapper

  • Endeavours With scriptcs.hosting
    One of the most promising perspectives in scriptcs, in my opinion, is hosting. Basically hosting is the complete package of scriptcs, just put inside your own application. It can be pretty mind blowing to think about this. Hosting makes it possible execute C# scripts inside of any standard .
