The Launch of a Beta Version of Windows Compatibility Pack for .Net Core and More

The Launch of a Beta Version of Windows Compatibility Pack for .Net Core

Taking the step to make the life of developers further easier, Microsoft has recently moved the code from the Windows-oriented .Net framework to cross-platform .Net Core with the help of extended API access. The beta of Windows Compatibility Pack has added 20,000 APIs to .Net Core. To what extent do developers utilize this move depends somewhat on their comfort with the .Net framework.

.Net framework as we all know has always emphasized Windows desktop development while the open source .Net Core framework is optimized for cross-platform capabilities, that is building web applications for Windows, Linux, and MacOS.

Porting APIs to .Net Core has pros and cons of its own. Since .Net Core facilitates applications that can run and scale on Linux, addition of more APIs from the .Net framework makes it more useful for cross platform web application development. On the negative side, developers who wish to use Microsoft desktop technologies such as WinForms, Windows Presentation Foundation, or ASP.Net should carry on with .Net Framework.

Experts in the industry believe that migration should be done as a series of steps rather than a big transformation all at once. For instance, while migrating from an ASP.Net MVC application deployed on a Windows Server to an ASP.Net Core application on Linux deployed on the Azure cloud, Microsoft believes migration to ASP.Net Core could take place while still targeting the .Net Framework. In that way, you can move to .Net Core while still on Windows. And finally, you can also move to Linux and Azure.

Azure IoT Edge Released as a Public Beta

Azure IoT Edge has been released as a beta version recently. It has expanded the Microsoft’s Azure IoT Suite. Edge computing is defined in terms of networks and datacenters. Microsoft defines it in terms of a distributed cloud that incorporates computers of any and every dimension.

In a more formal way, it can be defined as a platform comprising container-based machine learning models deployed along with your own code and features of Azure such as stream analytics and serverless Azure Functions.

This very vision is the brainchild of the foundation of Azure IoT Edge. It has now been released as a public beta now, and it expands Microsoft’s Azure IoT Suite.

Despite having some of the ready-to-use machine learning models in Azure IoT Edge, Microsoft as always is not being dogmatic with its approach. Two IoT deployments will never be the same no matter even if they belong to the same industry. This is so because predefined solutions can easily become lowest common denominators with reduced effectiveness and efficiency.

To conclude the things, the beta version of Windows Compatibility Pack has added 20,000 APIs to .Net Core for Windows, Linux, and MacOS that has made it more like the Windows-only .Net Framework. On the other side of the technology world, Azure IoT Edge allows devices enabled with edge computing to be able to act on their own, and connect when it’s needed. The technology world is ever-changing and these two recent developments have promised to enhance this ephemeral world considerably.
