Desktop App Converter

Windows 10, the latest OS from Microsoft introduced the new Universal Windows Platform (UWP) app development. UWP apps can run on all Windows 10 devices such as Xbox One, HoloLens, phones and much more. When we migrate to the new OS, how we will take our old windows applications ? Do you want to run the same as a legacy application, which will not able to use any of the modern app features like Contracts, start screen and so on ? Or do you want to convert the same to UWP app with minimum effort ?

Microsoft released a new tool – Desktop App COnverter, currently in preview to make this migration smooth. Desktop App Converter allows developers to bring their desktop apps to UWP.

New Start – ASP.NET Core 1.0

All ASP.NET lovers following the great web application development framework may be thinking, why we need to think of the old and dead version1.0 ? We were already in ASP.NET 4.6 and waiting for ASP.NET 5, no time to think about 1.0. Hold on.

Microsoft renamed our dearest ASP.NET 5 as ASP.NET Core 1.0. ASP.NET Core is written from scratch and it is a new beginning; so renamed to ASP.NET Core 1.0. As mentioned, it is a new start, so don’t expect all the ASP.NET 4.6 features right now in ASP.NET Core 1.0. They will incorporate more relevant features from ASP.NET 4.6 in future versions.

Along with this, MS renamed the supporting frameworks to declared a new beginning
ASP.NET 5 => ASP.NET Core 1.0
.NET Core 5 => .NET Core 1.0
Entity Framework 7 => Entity Framework Core 1.0 / EF Core 1.0

Now, how we are going to google on the new features ?

All the existing articles refer ASP.NET 5, whereas new articles will refer the same as ASP.NET Core 1.0.
Google two times or use OR ? 🙂
Is google bring data relevant to ASP.NET Core 1.0 or ASP.NET 1.0 ?

New version change removed the myth – ASP.NET 5 is a higher version of ASP.NET 4.6. As usual we expected ASP.NET 5 as the next version of ASP.NET with more features than ASP.NET 4.6.
