After you get Mono installed, it’s probably a good idea to run a quick Hello World program to make sure everything is set up properly. That way you’ll know that your Mono is working before you try writing or running a more complex application. The Mono project focuses on compilers and runtime libraries and does not directly provide an IDE. Developers must choose from a series of available tools the one best suited for them. MonoDevelop is a Mono/C# Integrated Development Environment for Windows, Linux and macOS. It parses your C# and VB programs as you type them and is able to provide contextual completion of methods.
