In September 2019, Microsoft announced .NET Core 3.0, an important milestone in the transition from the .NET Framework, a proprietary, closed source, Windows-only platform to an open source, multi-platform framework. It brought with it support for desktop development, C# 8, and enhancements to ASP.NET Core and Entity Framework.
In this talk, we will look at the benefits of .NET Core (focused on ASP.NET Core) for existing .NET Developers as well as the development community as a whole and take a look at the more exciting features of the platform (gRPC support, Blazor, enhancements to Identity, C# 8 features)… using Visual Studio for Mac, deploying to and debugging in a Docker container.
