After Mr. Satya started working as CEO , he has been doing a lot of changes. Making .Net open source was really a big move for MS.
Microsoft introduced .Net Core . And the concept of this seems similar(Conceptually) to NodeJS .
They removed old packages.config file and introduced project.json which is fully conceptually similar to NPM’s package.json , even the Keyword is similar “dependencies” , “scripts” etc .
They removed ASP.Net Forms , which is surely a good thing.
One of the cool things is that , Microsoft understood that Its high time to make .Net CrossPlatform , otherwise they would have lost the developers community as people moving to NodeJS , GO , and Functional programming stuffs who use Linux and/or MAC . Coz .Net was only for Windows users before. But now .Net core can be run in any platform which is awesome and definitely a good business trick for Microsoft.
Today , we will see how we can run .Net core in Ubuntu.
