Getting to the.NET Core is truly a new technology that is fast, efficient, cross platform, and open source. It also shares many similarities with the .NET you've known and loved for years. This session explains exactly what .NET Core is; but doesn't stop there. The session will dive deep into the architecture and runtime, including how it works across different platforms like Windows, OSX, and Linux. This session will also explore how your apps are loaded and who hosts them, how the runtime finds tools to run commands on, and deeper subjects like what the muxer is, getting true side by side deployment, runtime identifiers, the new .NET Platform Standard, and more.

You will learn:

  • Where you can use your existing code with .NET Core
  • How your applications are loaded with .NET Core
  • The architecture behind .NET Core
