“Once a new technology rolls over you if you’re not part of the steamroller, you’re part of the road.”

What is .Net Core?
.NET Core is a cross-platform version of .NET, which is an open-source, free development platform maintained by Microsoft, .NET Core is used for building websites, consoles and services apps. It runs on Windows, Linux and macOS operating systems.
The framework of .NET Core can be used to develop different types of applications like mobile, web, desktop, cloud, IoT, microservices, etc. It is designed from scratch to make it scalable, lightweight, and fast. It includes the essential features needed to run the basic .NET Core app. Certain features are provided as NuGet packages, which you can add to your application as required. In this way, the .NET Core applications speed up the performance, makes it easy to maintain reducing the memory footprint.
The below are the .NET Core key features:
1. Increased flexibility with cross-platform support
.NET Core can run the applications on Windows, Linux and macOS operating systems. If any business needs to target a large number of audiences, users and multiple technologies, .NET Core is the best option for those needs. Using .NET, we can develop and support various platform applications which help businesses to achieve more flexibility.
2. Wide range of applications
Other than cross-platform, the .NET Core framework can be used to develop a variety of applications. Applications like Gaming, IoT, AI, Machine learning, web, mobile, a desktop can be developed and run on .NET core platforms.
3. Lightweight and modular applications
.NET Core supports microservices and docker containers. Microservices contains several business services. Those services can work and deploy independently where services are connected via API with fast runtime. Combining both microservices and dockers plays a crucial role in building lightweight and modular applications.
4. Deployment flexibility
.NET Core can be deployed system-wide or with the docker containers.
5. Command Line Interface Tools
.NET Core includes Command Line Interface tools for local deployments and continuous integration.
6. Consistent across environments
.NET Core can run applications with consistent behavior on different architectures and operating systems which includes x64, x86 and ARM.
Since its release, the .NET Core has already gained a considerable reputation due to excessive resources, libraries and frameworks. It has the potential to support ASP.NET, C#, F#, ML.NET. Xamarin, WinForms, WPF. It also includes Ahead of Time compilation (AOT), a Garbage Collection (GC), Just In Time collection (JIT) and a base class library. By comparison to other rivals, all these sets and components build an intelligible .NET Core framework.
