What is ASP.NET & ASP.NET Core?
ASP.NET Core is an open-source web app framework that lays the foundation for creating web apps in .NET Core. ASP.NET Core is the open-source version of ASP.NET that runs on macOS, Linux, and Windows. ASP.NET allows developers to build great websites and web apps using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript and offers 3 frameworks—ASP.NET WebForms, ASP.NET MVC, and ASP.NET Web Pages. The original .NET framework was released in Feb 2002 by Microsoft, mainly targeted for Windows OS allowing .NET apps to be written in C#, F#, or VB. In 2016, .NET Core evolved to provide cross-platform support (Win, Linux, MacOS).
