Since its release back in 2016, ASP.NET Core has attracted a lot of attention across businesses and CTOs. It was marketed as an open-source software framework that works on Windows, Linux, and macOS and facilitates cross-platform development. Over the years, .NET Core has received rave reviews from developers who praise it for scalability, consistent programming model, direct support for security, and less complicated development efforts.
Why .NET Core Became the Next Big Thing?
.NET Core is an open-source web framework for developing advanced, sophisticated web applications. It is created on the MVC framework that combines the features of MVC and Web API into a single web programming framework. It also makes application deployment and maintenance simple.
With Microsoft’s announcement to only continue development and push updates on .Net Core, there is little reason not to start looking at .Net Core. Undoubtedly, the .NET Framework has been popular, but it was not designed to share the code across diverse platforms. This drawback was overcome by .NET Core, with a library that can be deployed on various platforms.
Developing the framework to be compatible with Windows, Linux, and even Mac platforms is the reason for the birth and tremendous success of the .NET Core.
The main reasons why developers are moving away from .Net Framework:
Advantages of .NET Core
✔ Cross-Platform: The structure of ASP.NET is fully re-architected in a way that you can develop your .NET applications on all platforms, including Windows, Linux, and even Mac platforms. This has become its biggest strength. Having said that, the dependency of Windows libraries has been removed in such a way that you can easily migrate your .NET applications to .NET Core without any complications.
✔ Open Source: The code of ASP.NET Core is open to all at the GitHub site, where Microsoft contributors and open source community members actively interact. It enables transparency between the framework and developers. This way, developers can contribute to it, customize it, and embrace it in their unique ways. Because of its open nature, developers get instant solutions to problems.
✔ Security Advantage: .NET Core applications can run on Linux Servers; thus, they inherently receive all the security layers of running their applications on a Linux server. In addition, you can secure an ASP.NET Core Web Application with plenty of other options, such as JWT (JSON Web Token), Custom Authentication mechanism, OAuth, and third-party authentication providers such as Facebook, Google, and more.
✔ Robust: .NET. ASP.NET Core framework is modular, thin, fast, and extensible. Considered one of the fastest web application frameworks available, it consists of NuGet packages, making it faster, reliable, and secure. The lightweight framework ensures rapid development to develop the most innovative digital products that add value to the customer and provides an enriching experience to them.
✔ Faster Time-To-Market: Razor pages, Modular architecture, powerful UI components, broader community support, regular updates, easy integration of client-side frameworks, secure processes, cloud-ready and built-in dependency injection – these allow businesses to leverage continuous development and deployments and make development faster.
