For instance, we now have that in the StackExchange universe for SQL Azure (which handles general SQL examples very well).

I was thinking it would be very nice to have a similar environment to be able to have a few class files and a console program to be able to demonstrate core basic C#/.NET programming techniques - live.

Is there such an online live C#/.NET environment already that we could use to post on StackOverflow? (If not, I will post on Meta).


Snippet compiler is a handy tool for these types of examples. Would it be fair to say (for comparison's sake) that this would/should be like web-based version of snippet compiler?

@Paul Sasik - that is a cool tool, but that's not really what I meant by live. I'm thinking something where you went to a web site (in any browser) and were able to see a small class or two and see the main() call them and see the output. With ability to edit, see compiler errors, etc. Then share a permalink and anyone could see the code live.

@John Saunders I'm looking for Visual Studio Express Live. I want to set up something where people don't have to download and open a solution/project.
