.NET was announced in the year 2000, it is not becoming a grandfather technology. Instead, .NET keeps increasing developer traction since it has become open source and is available not only on Windows but also on Linux platforms. .NET can also run within the browser on the client—without the need to install a plugin—by using the WebAssembly standard.
As new enhancements for C# and .NET are coming, a focus lies not only on performance gains but also on ease of use. .NET more and more is a choice for new developers.
C# is also attractive for long-term developers. Every year, Stack Overflow asks developers about the most loved, dreaded, and wanted programming languages and frameworks. For several years, C# has been within the top 10 of the most loved programming languages. ASP.NET Core now holds the top position as the most loved web framework. .NET Core is number one in the most loved other frameworks/libraries/tools category. See https:// insights.stackoverflow.com/survey/2020 for details.
When you use C# and ASP.NET Core, you can create web applications and services (including microservices) that run on Windows, Linux, and Mac. You can use the Windows Runtime to create native Windows apps using C#, XAML, and .NET. You can create libraries that you share between ASP.NET Core, Windows apps, and .NET MAUI. You can also create traditional Windows Forms and WPF applications.
Most of the samples of this book are built to run on a Windows or Linux system. Exceptions are the Windows app samples that run only on the Windows platform. You can use Visual Studio, Visual Studio Code, or Visual Studio for the Mac as the developer environment; only the Windows app samples require Visual Studio.
