Asp.NET Core is, well, the vNext of .NET. This category describes my adventures with the exciting new generation – wait, not only generation, but a PARADIGM – of Microsoft’s CLR that does what Java was supposed to do, and does it well.
According to Microsoft, ASP.NET Core is the open-source version of ASP.NET, that runs on macOS, Linux, and Windows. ASP.NET Core was first released in 2016 and is a re-design of earlier Windows-only versions of ASP.NET. With ASP.NET Core, you can:
- Build web apps and services, IoT apps, and mobile backends.
- Use your favorite development tools on Windows, macOS, and Linux.
- Deploy to the cloud or on-premises.
- Run on .NET Core or .NET Framework.
So, in short, ASP.NET Core is a cross-platform, high-performance, open-source framework for building modern, cloud-based, Internet-connected applications.
