.NET Core

ASSESS?

.NET Core is an open source modular product for creating applications that can be easily deployed in Windows, macOS and Linux. .NET Core makes it possible to build cross-platform web applications using ASP.NET Core with a set of tools, libraries and frameworks—another choice for microservices architecture. The community around .NET Core and other related projects has been growing. New tools have appeared and evolved quickly, such as Visual Studio Code. There are Docker images based on both Linux and Windows (Nano Server) with .NET Core that simplify applying a microservice architecture. CoreCLR and CoreFX appeared in the Radar in the past. However, a few months ago Microsoft announced the release of .NET Core 1.0, the first stable version. We see good new opportunities, changes and a vibrant community as reasons to keep assessing this product.

CoreCLR and CoreFX is the core platform and framework for .NET. Although not new, they have recently been open sourced by Microsoft. A key change is that these dependencies are bin-deployable, they do not need to be installed on a machine in advance.  This eases side-by-side deployments, allowing applications to use different framework versions without conflicts. Something written in .NET is then an implementation detail, you can install a .NET dependency into any environment. A .NET tool is no different than something written in C from an external dependency perspective, making it a much more attractive option for general purpose applications and utilities. CoreFX is also being factored into individual NuGet dependencies, so that applications can pull what they need, keeping the footprint for .NET applications and libraries small and making it easier to replace part of the framework.
