ASP.NET Core for ASP.NET developers
No, you didn’t get it wrong: the title is right because although the core web framework is still about controllers, views and routes, under the hood it's completely different. That said, despite all the hype and buzzwords, the new ASP.NET Core framework doesn't involve a sweeping set of changes for the average ASP.NET MVC developer. A few things are definitely different (data access via Entity Framework 7, configuration, security, diagnostics) but the whole thing is definitely concept-compatible. So why is it reckoned to be so important to the masses of developers? Because the runtime environment is completely different, and that's the key to possible improved performance and scalability. A new runtime environment also forces us to rewrite from scratch all custom components previously hosted in the pipeline, such as HTTP handlers and modules. This talks reveals the internals of the new ASP.NET Core runtime and what it means to write fresh middleware (like HTTP modules) for the new platform.
