    It's been really hard streaming videos on this site in recent months and my link is good. Missing a lot of the content otherwise

    @Avinash: .NET Core has client side support for WCF, so you can call a WCF service. However there is no server side support for it currently. We are very interested in what scenarios you would want supported. Let us know.

    Now, I can continue to develop and write code on the macOS for .NET apps. This is awesome. I am super excited. Keep up the good work guys and gals!

    This is just Xamarin Studio with a different name, and all the buggy behavior

    @Ricardo: Although Visual Studio for Mac shares a heritage with Xamarin Studio, it substantially broadens the experience, allowing you to develop for mobile, cloud and games. We added support for .NET Core, .NET Standard and the new SDK-style projects, and ported over significant functionality from the Windows version of Visual Studio, including the web editors, Roslyn 2.0, MSBuild 15.0, Docker Tools, and Unity Tools. Over time we expect to add even more.

    I'm sorry you're encountering bugs. If you could report them on Developer Community to make sure we're aware of them, that would be much appreciated.

    Not a lot of content available in terms of tutorials for VS/Mac yet. How hard is it going to be for non-VS/Windows developers to pick up VS/Mac? Seems like a huge leap from Sublime Text, VS Code, Atom, XCode, etc.

    @Scott: Have you checked out the VS for Mac docs? https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/visualstudio/mac/

    @Scott we're continuing to build out the docs, are there specific areas you'd like to see us focus on?

    Any chance we can get data tools and connections for dbs in the mac version? :) Mac users care about data too!
