    Why are you using Chrome browser, search in Google in this video? While you are advertising one of our Microsoft products, apparently our Edge browser and Bing search engine are getting ignored. It is inappropriate to put such videos on Microsoft's official web site.

    @KelsonJBall:@bleroy:LOL :D

    @Tao:We don't need to be loyal to the Microsoft stack just because we work here. We should use the products that make us the most productive developers and we encourage our customers to do the same. That's what this whole cross-plat and open source transformation is about. I use google because it's search results tailor to the needs of a developer incredibly fast and I love chrome because I can have the same browser experience across Mac, Windows, and Linux. I've had problems with bing and edge as a coder, but I will continue to try them out every so often because I know those teams are working competitively to better their product. It's a brave new world. :)

    Hi,

    I see difference in file and project type system generated in VS2015 and 17. In 2015, I still see project.json and .xproj type, although I have installed latest of 2015 updates and core tooling for that as well.However, VS2017RC and cli is giving .csproj type. Why there is inconsistency?

    Thanks,

    Rahul

    @rahulsahay19: Good question! We explain it all in a blog post on MSBuild and project.json. tl;dr Project.json was great for building cross-platform web applications and class libraries, but as we kept expanding .NET Core we wanted to be able to share code across all of the .NET application models (WinForms, WPF, UWP, ASP.NET, iOS, Android, etc.). Using MSBuild (which creates a .csproj) is the best way for us to do it.

    Hi Kendra,

    I thought Visual Studio Code was the only Visual Studio for Mac and the last editor and IDE that we would ever need. But I have just learned about the Visual Studio 2017 for Mac...

    I am confused now! Could you please tell me which one is the closest to the actual MS Visual Studio? I am having trouble with my dotnet, so I cannot just experiment with them both.

    Thanks

    @Henny: Hey, sorry for taking so long to respond! VS for Mac is definitely closer to Visual Studio than VS Code is. VS Code is just a light-weight cross-platform source code editor. VS for Mac is definitely an integrated development environment that gets more features with every release. I recommend both. VS Code is great for light-weight code edits. VS for Mac has more convenient features for more involved developing.

    Hi @hamid. Where did you download your VS Code installer. I am pretty sure its not the installer that brought virus to your pc.

    @hamid - it's a code editor, so YOU sent the virus into VS code if you opened one!

    Don't mind Chome on the demo, while most demos should be IE/edge it's good to see a common browser being used to show MS are part of a wider community. ;-)

    Hi Kendra,

    Great tutorial, Please make a tutorial series on getting started on .net core development for beginners or recommend any.

    @Saad:Hi there Saad! 

     

    For folks completely new to programming I recommend this course on Microsoft Virtual Academy. It goes over the basics of learning C#.

    For developers who are already familiar with C# and programming basics and want to learn about .NET Core coolness specifically I'd watch this video with Scott and Maria where they dive into ASP.NET Core. A few of the commands they run have changed in the past sdk release, but its a great intro.
