Converting a .NET application to .NET Core (formerly DNX)

Andrew Male. Red Hat Developers Blog. 2016-06-04.
In my first .NET core post, I set out on a journey to conquer the new world of .NET Core (formerly DNX) on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). In my ignorance I believed I would do a short post on firing up RHEL, installing .NET Core, and then converting an application from .NET to .NET Core before adding it as a build job to a new TeamCity instance. The best laid plans seem to be the ones that get me closest to throwing my computer out the window, and Part 1 stands as a comedy of my errors. With all of that sorted, however, it is time to finish the job and start working with .NET Core on RHEL. (RHEL is now available at no cost for developer use! You can download it here.)

A Windows Guy’s Guide: Setting up .NET Core on RHEL

Andrew Male. Red Hat Developers Blog. 2016-06-03.
Despite spending plenty of time in Red Hat Linux while I was young, I have become an unabashed Windows environment super-user/programmer. Still, it’s hard to discount the multitude of ways that the *nix community stands ahead and alone, so when Microsoft and Red Hat announced their partnership to bring .NET to Linux, I had no choice but to take notice. As an experiment, I am going to go through setting up Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and .NET Core to see if I can’t have a little fun and test the technology before it’s even at its first release.
This post is the first of two, with the final goal of learning how to convert an existing .NET application to .NET Core. But first we have to set up .NET Core on RHEL. (Also note that RHEL is now available at no cost for developer use! You can download it here.)
