ASP.NET Core 1.0 Released!


DiscussThis day has been a long time coming but I want to congratulate the team at Microsoft for delivering the first version of ASP.NET Core! I’m very excited to start working with the bits on real projects.

If you haven’t had a chance to look at play with ASP.NET Core, it’s time! For the ASP.NET MVC and Web API users, the transition is pretty quick, but if you’re coming from ASP.NET Web Forms or another technology, there is a learning curve.

My sense of it is that this is a new platform, not a new development model. You are closer to the metal without having to give up the productivity of the ASP.NET you’ve always loved (and maybe hated a little). This is a mature, open source, cross platform, and fast ASP.NET. It’s a new day in Microsoft’s web platform and it’s time to be a part of it.

To get started, just visit:

dot.net 

You can download the SDK for Windows, Mac and Linux (Ubuntu, Debian, Redhat and others) there. You can even build a Docker container with it here. If you’re working in Windows, you can also get the Visual Studio Extensions (you’ll need Visual Studio 2015 Update 3 too). Or if you want to develop with it cross platform, go grab a copy of Visual Studio Code (and get the C# Extension to make it all work well).

Finally, they also released new docs for all of this (and more of .NET too) here:

docs.microsoft.com 

My Pluralsight Course “Building a Web App with ASP.ENT Core, MVC6, Entity Framework Core, and Angular” is going to be updated soon for RTM and I’ll announce that here once it’s public.
