At Red Hat Summit 2018, Red Hat’s John Osborne and Microsoft’s Harold Wong gave a talk: Developing .NET Core Applications on Red Hat OpenShift.
.NET Core 1.0 availability for Linux was announced two years ago, but many developers still have a number of questions about the differences between .NET Framework and .NET Core. The session started with an overview of the differences. In a nutshell, .NET Framework is the set of APIs and libraries that Windows developers have used to years, which is pretty heavily tied to Microsoft Windows and Windows GUI APIs. On the other hand, .NET Core is the cross-platform set of APIs that are available for building applications that can run on Linux, macOS, or mobile devices via Xamarin. .Net Core 2.0 was released last August; see Don Schenck’s article.
One of the key questions is when to use one versus the other. Here’s the summary Harold Wong presented:

If you’re running Red Hat Enterprise Linux server on Microsoft Azure, you may want to shut down and deallocate the VM using commands inside of the VM itself for automation or just for convenience. On Azure, if you shut down the VM by using
shutdown -h or another OS command, it will stop but not deallocate it. The stopped VM is still using resources and will continue to incur compute charges. To avoid that, this article shows how a VM can shut itself down and deallocate its resources using the Azure CLI 2.0.

The role of applications has changed dramatically. In the past, applications were running businesses, but primarily relegated to the background. They were critical, but more operational in the sense that they kept businesses running, more or less. Today, organizations can use applications as a competitive advantage. In fact, a well-developed, well-timed application can disrupt an entire industry. Just take a look at the hotel, taxi, and movie rental industries respectively.
