.NET Core and ASP.NET Core offer several advantages over traditional .NET development. You should use .NET Core for your server applications if some or all of the following are important to your application’s success:
- Use of microservices
- Use of Docker containers
- High performance and scalability requirements
Side-by-side versioning of .NET versions by application on the same server
There are two supported implementations for building server-side applications with .NET: .NET Framework and .NET Core. Both share many of the same components and you can share code across the two. However, there are fundamental differences between the two and your choice depends on what you want to accomplish. This article provides guidance on when to use each.

Force to run tests in test projects serially; (for integration or ui type of tests)
Add this to the xunit test project app.config file:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<add key="xunit.methodDisplay" value="method" />
<add key="xunit.parallelizeAssembly" value="false" />
<add key="xunit.parallelizeTestCollections" value="false" />
<add key="xunit.maxParallelThreads" value="1" />

With .NET being open source, you can also install and use the .NET Framework on your Linux machine with multiple languages, such as C#, F#, and Visual Basic (coming soon). This Refcard guides you through productively using .NET on Linux, from installation to debugging. You will find an architectural overview, tips for using the new Command Line Interface (CLI), and tools and helpful settings as they relate to your development efforts. This Refcard also covers building MVC web sites, RESTful services, and standalone applications.
