Microsoft .Net core pushed to be open-source soon: Why, and what it really offers?

If you belong to or have some involvement in the world of technology and IT solutions, you must have heard the latest raucous announcement from Microsoft. Microsoft’s .Net core is now open source and will be launched – if everything goes well – by mid-June.

Definitely, such a big decision from the master of innovations is not a result of sudden impulse of love for .Net developers, or for cross-platform development specialists. Microsoft must have made such a compelling move with a strong intent. But among the confused mixture of expert speculations, the truth is, developers are going to reap the best out of this.

The questions are coming in tandem from all the IT corners across the globe: Why softening around their stringent restrictions so far? What difference would it make? Why now? How will it change the world of .net developers? Skim through this article to find out some answers:

Why open-source .Net core?

The big chunk of general curiosity about the news is emanating not only from the fact that .Net core is to be open source, but there is more to it. According to Microsoft’s blog, there are two salient reasons why they decided to go open source:

1. Lay the foundation for a cross platform .Net

The challenge for Windows implementations so far was that both Windows and Mono have different code base. This often resulted in customers reporting various mismatches. Fixing such issues was a fairly gruelling job as was handling the instances of duplicated work. So the ultimate solution was open source, making the building of cross platform stack possible with great degree of collaboration.

2. Build and leverage a strong ecosystem

Open source means, every changes made appears publically and is consumable. It is more like an agile development style where interacting with customers comes easy. Open sourcing, according to Microsoft .Net team, increases engagement with customers in real time whose early feedbacks improve the stack. This significantly helps avoid bigger risk involved in making a drastic change.

What would developers benefit from .Net core open source?

The following are the benefits developers would gain from open source .Net core:

  • Faster start-up and faster performance
  • Greater compatibility and reduced runtime
  • Cleaner and simpler deployment
  • Considerable reduction in hosting, licencing and maintenance cost
  • Better engagement of community across other platforms

One of the remarkable offerings .Net developers will gratefully cherish is .Net core platform becoming soon accessible on Mac and Linux. This indicates that apart from Windows, developers can now build web and cloud based applications for any other operating system.

What we think

As start-ups are entering the digital market, having the cost effective solution is the common concern among aspiring clients. Albeit having best development tools and a glorious development community, Microsoft somehow was losing its pace in the changing market and had probably failed to connect with the sentiments of developers by keeping their services confined.

Microsoft thought that enabling developers to deploy their apps to open source platforms will keep the community happy and invite more customers. With a sensible decision of open-sourcing the .Net core stack, they have gained a lot of applause and cheers. Hopefully, developers will be able to build excellent next generation app with .Net core offerings.
