Simple .NET Core Application Using VB.NET

.NET Core 2 Preview 1 brings us support for VB.NET on .NET Core. Although tooling for web applications is not ready yet we can start with console applications and also some web applications like I will show in some of my later posts. Visual Studio 2017 Preview 2 is needed to try VB.NET out on .NET Core. This blog post is a short demo about how to build a simple utility application on .NET Core 2 Preview 1 using VB.NET.

What about ASP.NET Core and VB.NET? It’s coming, I’m sure. I was able to write Pages and MVC applications on VB.NET, but failed to get views working with tag helpers. Web based APIs that don’t require views can be written on VB.NET already.
