Why You Should Give .NET Core another look

Created On: 2019-11-24

Since around Windows 7, Microsoft have provided C# compiler and project build tool (msbuild) with the OS. At that time, you can create winforms program without installing any IDE if you know how C# and .NET tools work.

A few years later, here we have free, cross platform .NET Core 3. Recently I need to port a backup tool from linux to Windows 10 and tried .NET Core 3. Here is my experience using the platform.

All in all, I think .NET Core is heading to the right direction. As a developer, I am happy development in Windows and on .NET Core platform is easier than before. You should give it a try if you haven't used .NET for some time.
