Hello, this is a video tutorial for
getting set up with Visual Studio
and .NET Core to write cross
First, go to your browser and
search .NET Core.
The .NET Core download page will
be one of the first results.
I’m going to first take you
through downloading Visual Studio,
don’t worry I’ll speed it
up with movie magic, and
you guys should totally
take the survey.
I’m not going to because
everyone would steal my answers.
Go ahead and
click on the .exe and click Run.
So Visual Studio and Visual
Studio Code are very different.
While Visual Studio Code is
a lightweight cross-platform
source code editor, and
I’ll select the default settings.
Visual Studio is the integrated
the mothership, the fully
featured developer experience for
C sharp, visual basic and F sharp.
So the visual studio
install is finished.
Now let’s download .NET Core.
Go back to the install page and
click on .NET Core tools install.
I’ll fast forward through this one,
too, even though it is super fast.
And don’t forget to read
through the license agreement,
because somebody takes
the time to write those.
All right, now let’s start our first
.NET Core project in Visual Studio.
So go ahead and
launch Visual Studio.
And I’m gonna go
with the blue theme.
Now, click on New Project
on the Start page.
And I’ll select .NET Core
under the C# drop-down.
And I’ll make a console application,
wait for it to start up, okay.
There we go.
Now who wants to see Kendra
fail editing videos?
Wait for it.
There it is.
Anyway, I’m going to make
a console app that prints,
it’s a brave new
And I’ll add a Console.ReadLine.
And I’ll run it. Cool.
So that’s what it looks like
Now I’m actually running Windows
on an image in parallels.
So let’s see that same DLL file that
I just generated execute on my Mac.
All I need to do is navigate to
my DLL in my shared folder and
type dotnet consoleapp1.dll,
cuz that’s final name it generated.
So that’s the dll file that made
with Visual Studio on Windows that
can run cross platform.
I swear there are some people
watching this video who just
went, that’s what .NET Core does!
This is for those people.
Thanks for watching.
