What is the .Net Core ?
“.NET Core is a blazing fast, lightweight and modular platform for creating web applications and services that run on Windows, Linux and Mac.”
Basically if your a hardcore .Net person and want to build apps for all platforms with the knowledge you possess this is the framework to start off with.. A feature that attracted me personally to this was the ability to work with multiple different applications which were built targeting different versions of .Net on the same device.For more detailed version of the features follow this link.
