.NET Core 2.0: Is it ready?

01:13:49 (27 Mb)

In anticipation of the up-coming .NET Core 2.0 release (and the preview currently available), Todd, Jess, and Chris offer their answers to some of the frequently asked questions around .NET Core, such as:
  • Does .NET Core 2.0 have all the namespaces/APIs as .NET 4.6?
  • Does .NET Core support Visual Basic (VB.NET) yet?
  • What about SignalR - is that available?
  • What options do I have when running my ASP.NET Core applications?  Do I have to use IIS?  What about Docker?
  • What is .NET Standard (and should I care)?
  • What's the best IDE to use when building an ASP.NET Core application?
And, of course…
  • Should I start moving from .NET 4.6 to .NET Core now?  Is it ready for prime time?
