One of our goals here on the Google Cloud Platform team is to support the broadest possible array of platforms and operating systems. That’s why we’re so excited about the ASP.NET Core, the next generation of the open source ASP.NET web framework built on .NET Core. With it, .NET developers can run their apps cross-platform on Windows, Mac and Linux.
One thing that ASP.NET Core does is allow .NET applications to run in Docker containers. All of a sudden, we’ve gone from Windows-only web apps to lean cross-platform web apps running in containers. This has been great to see!
