Main: NET Core, the new .NET Platform

Microsoft is working hard to modernize the .NET Platform. There are great new frameworks and tools coming, such as .NET Core and ASP.NET Core. The amount of new things is overwhelming, with multiple .NET Platforms (.NET Framework, Unified Windows Platform, .NET Core), multiple runtimes (CoreCLR, CLR, CoreRT), multiple compilers (Roslyn, RyuJIT, .NET Native and LLILC) and much more. This session will bring you up to speed on all this new Microsoft technology, focusing on .NET Core.
But, we will also take a look at the first framework implementation on top op .NET Core for the Web: ASP.NET Core 1.0. You will learn about ASP.NET Core 1.0 and how it is different from ASP.NET 4.6. This will include Visual Studio 2015 support, cross-platform ASP.NET Core and command-line tooling for working with ASP.NET Core and .NET Core projects.
After this session you know where Microsoft is heading in the near future. Be prepared for a new .NET Platform.
