Let's talk .NET Core

Posted by John Browne on Sep, 23, 2019 @ 06:09

If you develop for Windows you have to know about .NET Core (and if you don't develop for Windows why the heck are you reading this blog?). Well, in case you've been under heavy sedation, let me fill you in: .NET Core is the open source version of the .NET Framework, giving it reach from Windows to Linux and MacOS. Up to now, .NET Core has been interesting only to people who wanted to develop for UWP or ASP.NET but that's all changed with Version 3, which is available as a release candidate now. Among other goodies are support for C# 8.0, ReadyToRun (R2R) executables, and support for Winforms and WPF apps.
