ASP.NET Core advantages

ASP.NET Core is an emerging, robust, and feature-rich framework that provides features to develop super-fast APIs for web apps.

It is an open-source, cross-platform framework, developed both by Microsoft and its community. It is a complete reform of ASP.NET that combines MVC structure and Web API into a single framework.

Some of the major changes include:

  • Cross-platform ASP.NET apps on Windows, Mac, and Linux
  • Robust performance 
  • Modern tools to simplify development
  • Open-source framework
  • Faster compilation, async operations
