In this post I would like to List down the Advantages of .Net Core, ASP.NET Core, EF Core.
.Net Core Advantages
Open Source allowing source code availability & customization.
Cross-Platform runs on Windows, Linux and Mac OS.
Lightweight through newly written libraries, no dependency on windows OS libraries
High Performance in speed & efficiency
Scalability possible through Microservices & Containers supporting architecture
Disadvantages Third party library support are limited, Not available in Desktop applications.
ASP.NET Core Advantages
Additional to the open-source, cross-platform, light-weight advantages of .Net Core, following are the advantages of ASP.NET Core.
Unified story for building Web UI & Web APIs.
Testability friendly architecture through support for Interfaces.
Built-in Dependency Injection allowing singleton, scope, transient instance creation.
Host Friendly allowing hosting in IIS, Apache & Other web servers

EF Core Advantages
Additional to the open-source, cross-platform, light-weight advantages of .Net Core, following are the advantages of EF Core.
