.Net Core 1.0 is RTMed along with ASP.NET Core 1.0, EntityFramework 1.0 and Visual Studio 2015 update 3 on June 27 2016. For .Net developer this is an awesome moment not only due to RTM of another product but its more than that. “This” .NET Core runs every where, can develop application from editor of choice, able to work with dotnet cli etc. etc.
Actually i was Windows desktop/app developer earlier then from year ago (2015) i shifted from front end world to back end world and i am loving it. Still i am developing mobile apps as a hobby but my primary focus is now on web development.
I have been following ASP.NET Core from RC1 bits and now its RTMed. And good news is i was able to convince my company to use asp.net core for new project woooo!!! Now its time to explore asp.net core (along with .net core) from ground up to production. So from now on i am writing more on .net core, asp.net core, .NET Standard library and other open source technologies.
Few words on .NET Core:
.NET Core is a new cross-platform .NET product runs on Windows, Mac, and several flavors of Linux including RedHat Enterprise and Ubuntu. It supports C#, VB, and F# and modern constructs like generics, Language Integrated Query (LINQ), async support and more. All core components of .NET Core like Core Runtime, libraries, compiler, languages and tools are all open source on GitHub. You can develop .net core project side by side user-or machine wide. It is also compatible with .NET framework, Xamarin and MONO via new standard library i.e .NET Standard Library. It also provide Command-line tools i.e dotnet cli so any product that are build on top of .NET Core you can use power of CLI and many more.
