​.NET Core in the real world


Joe Stead


The majority of my career has been dominated by the .NET world, although recently my focus has been on exploring the greater development community. I'm a firm believer of continually learning and trying new things, you never know what else is out there.

Brief Overview


.NET Core has dominated the hype for a while, but, what’s it really like running in production, on different operating systems?

We ported our 15 year old codebase (you read that right) to be running on the shiniest new thing in the .NET world, and yes, we hit some problems.

.NET Core has dominated the hype for a while, but, what’s it really like running in production, on different operating systems?

We ported our 15 year old codebase (you read that right) to be running on the shiniest new thing in the .NET world, and yes, we hit some problems. Luckily, we managed to solve or work around those problems successfully.

Living on the bleeding edge with our legacy application has taught us a lot. We learnt very quickly it's better to embrace the platform, and the operating system to really reap the benefits. I can pass on some more of the lessons we learned to help you decide whether or not you should make the leap, and to ease your transition if you do.
