Write your Node.js app in C# with Roslyn

I learned it. I share it.

When the Microsoft Managed Languages team announced in December 2013, that they replaced the existing C# and Visual Basic compiler, and they use a new compiler to create the daily builds of the next version of Visual Studio, it became obvious to all developers, that something big is coming. The new tool, codename “Roslyn”, has far more capabilities than the previous csc.exe and vbc.exe, so it is not a coincidence that .NET Compiler Platform became its official name.

Roslyn is not only about converting our source code to an executable format, we already had a excellent tools for that for many years. The goal of Roslyn is to open the power of the compiler to developer and development environments (such as for Visual Studio), so this is a compiler-as-a-service solution.

Why do we need that? Compilers are very complicated, and during their execution they collect a huge amount of information…

    * What is CGI?

It is a gateway for transferring information between a World Wide Web server and a CGI program.

A CGI program is any program designed to accept and return data that conforms to the CGI specification. The program could be written in any programming language, including C, Perl, Java, or Visual Basic or ASP.NET.

CGI programs are the most common way for Web servers to interact dynamically with users. Many HTML pages that contain forms, for example, use a CGI program to process the form’s data once it’s submitted. Another increasingly common way to provide dynamic feedback for Web users is to include scripts or programs that run on the user’s machine rather than the Web server. These programs can be Java applets, Java scripts, or ActiveX controls. These technologies are known collectively as client-side solutions, while the use of CGI is a server-side solution because the…
