First Exploration into ASP.NET Core 1.0
Microsoft released the initial pieces of the first complete overhaul of .NET and ASP.NET since the development technologies were released. At some 15 years old, an overhaul to make them more useful for the needs of real-world, modern application development (especially on the Web) was long overdue. We'll explore what these "core" technologies are all about and why they are such a radical departure from their predecessors. By the end, you'll understand where the technologies are at in their evolution to get a good idea of whether you want to wait for them to mature or fully embrace them now for your projects.
