Get Started with .NET Core and Visual Studio 2017
This is a quick tutorial for getting set up with Visual Studio and .NET Core.
Hello! this is a video tutorial for
getting setup with Visual Studio and
.NET Core to write
Let's get started.
>> First, go to your favorite
browser and search .NET Core.
The .NET Core download page will
be one of the first results,
Here, you can find the steps
I'll go over in this video.
Click Download Visual Studio 2017,
ooh, Xamarin University.
Wait, no, focus Kendra.
Okay, click on the exe,
and click Yes to run.
And hit Continue.
And don't worry,
I'll be speeding up all of these
installs with movie magic!
Now we can use Visual Studio
to get .NET Core.
In this video, I'll be creating a
simple cross-platform .NET Core app.
So with Visual Studio 2017, you get
the option to select what workloads
you wish to install along
with Visual Studio.
Click all of the boxes!
Woah, okay, that calculated
install size is pretty big.
It's appearing in the bottom corner.
Maybe I'll rein in my
excitement just for this demo.
I'll select .NET Core Cross
Platform, UWP .NET framework,
Azure Development Workloads.
And you can see that install
size has gone down quite a bit,
which is great for my purposes.
And I have Container Development
Tools checked as well up there, and
So, Visual Studio and Visual
Studio Code are very different.
While Visual Studio Code
is a lightweight,
cross-platform source code editor.
Visual Studio is the integrated
the mother ship, the fully featured
developer experience for C#,
Visual Basic and F#.
And the Visual Studio install
is finished so I'll hit lunch.
And I think I'm gonna
go with the dark theme.
Now, let's start our first .NET
Core project in Visual Studio.
I'll click File > New >
Project on the start page and
select .NET Core under
the C# drop down.
I'll make a console application.
And I'll just wait for
that to start up.
I'm going to make a console app that
prints create cross platform apps
with .NET Core and Visual Studio.
I'll add a Console.ReadLine(),
and I'll hit Debug.
So that's what it looks on Windows.
Now, I'm actually running Windows
on an image in parallels.
So, let's see the same DLL file I
just generated execute on my Mac.
All I need to do is navigate to
my DLL and my shared folder,
that'll be in my
Visual Studio project folder,
in my apps
And to run, I'll type dotnet
that's the name of my project's DLL.
So that's a DLL file
that I made with
Visual Studio on Windows
that can run cross-platform.
>> I swear there are some people
watching this video who just went
that's what .NET Core does.
This is for those people.
Thanks for watching.
