HornGet – a place to get your OpenSource fix

Check out my new course Learn you some Lambda best practice for great good! and learn the best practices for performance, cost, security, resilience, observability and scalability.

Whilst listening to the latest .Net Rocks! podcast, I stumbled across HornGet, which is a site that provides pre-compiled binaries for well known open source projects such as NHibernate, RhinoMocks, etc.

I posted a while back about the problems I had finding a build of NHibernate which works with both FluentNHibernate and Linq2NHibernate, only if I knew about HornGet back then!

There are about 30 odd projects hosted on there for now, separated into a number of categories such as ORM, Logger, etc.
