Why .NET Core Made C# Your Next Programming Language to Learn

For years I have read about polyglot programmers and how some new language was the new cool thing. Over time, it has been programming languages like Ruby, Python, Scala, Go, Node.js, Swift, and others. It is amazing to see what Microsoft, and the community, have done with .NET Core and how it has become the cool new thing.
The problem with many of the existing programming languages is they are good at one use case. Ruby and PHP are awesome for web applications. Swift or Objective-C are great for creating iOS or MacOS applications. If you wanted to write a background service you could use Python, Java, or other languages. Besides C#, JavaScript and Java may be the only languages that can be applied to a wide set of use cases.
