There are many exciting aspects to .NET Core (open source, cross platform, x-copy deployable, etc.) that have been covered in posts on this blog before. To me, though, one of the most exciting aspects of .NET Core is performance.


In this article, we shall discuss top ASP.Net MVC Interview questions and answers for fresher and experienced dot net developers. Among many questions, the most important or the ones often asked are discussed here.


Sharing libraries between projects is a fundamental requirement in all but the most simple applications. This post looks at how things have changed with .NET Core.
