Long time freelance GIS developer, mainly ESRI ArcObjects with some Python on the side. Looking at ways to minimise reliance on ESRI licensing within small to medium sized organisations. Specifically how to easily transfer a map and its data to a form that sharpmap can display. This would include mapping the ArcMap's current symbology, labelling, min/max display scales etc. to the equivalent in SharpMap. Basically map to map conversion.
