In this section, thought of getting started new series on ASP.NET Core stuffs right from the beginning. The very first thing which needs to be done here downloading the core components from http://dot.net. Here, you will get two options LTS(Long Term Solution) and Current. I prefer LTS as this is how it is going to be in future. The major difference which I see is Project Type System (.xproj –> .csproj) change and project.json is going away. This has been done to embrace the existing Microsoft ecosystem which is based on .csproj system.
