New ASP.NET development: Core or regular? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm new to ASP.NET development and based on my research it looks like I will need to make a key decision up front:  Go with the regular Windows-only (but more mature) flavor or go with the cross-platform Core (less mature) version.

    For the foreseeable future, I see myself developing only on IIS/Windows Server...so that makes me think go with the regular flavor.  But after checking available tech books, it appears most are focused on the .NET Core version.  So given, I'm new, which dev path would make the most sense?  Which gets more dev/third party support?  Do both paths have a future???

  • Hi progers001,

    Thank you for posting here.

    For your question is more related to ASP.NET, I will move it to ASP.NET forum for suitable support.

    The CLR Forum discuss and ask questions about .NET Framework Base Classes (BCL) such as Collections, I/O, Regigistry, Globalization, Reflection. Also discuss all the other Microsoft libraries that are built on or extend the .NET Framework, including Managed Extensibility Framework (MEF), Charting Controls, CardSpace, Windows Identity Foundation (WIF), Point of Sale (POS), Transactions.

    Best Regards,
