(Presented by Gabrielle Crevecouer, Justine Cocchi, & Kevin Leung) ASP.NET Core is a new open-source Web framework optimized for building cross-platform web apps. ASP.NET Core comes with great new features ready to use out of the box with minimal setup required! In this talk we’ll look at .NET Core, architecture, package management and how to begin weighing the options between choosing .NET Framework and .NET Core. We will also share our experiences and insights while working alongside the .NET Core team at Microsoft to port over Jabbr, an existing web chat project reminiscent of the IRC chat room, from .NET Framework to .NET Core including the challenges we faced along the way. Core brings .NET into the exciting world of open-source, cross-platform and package modularity/portability – Let’s see what we can build!
