ASP.NET Core 2.0 - .NET 4.x

Evolving platforms is difficult. Breaking changes in particular are challenge.
Naming is also a challenge. A big challenge.
Google moved from Angular.js to Angular 2.0 to just "Angular" (version 4, skipping 3).
Good look searching for compatible code.

Microsoft's ASP.NET is based on .NET (1, 2, 3, 4... )
ASP.NET Core 1.x is based on .NET Core as well as on .NET 4.x.
Now ASP.NET 2.x is based on only .NET Core 2.0.
So switch to .NET Core one must, period.

At least it will be fast, and there i a good reason for calling it 2.0, it is a breaking change.

Google’s IoT Core service

Google’s new IoT Core service helps businesses manage their IoT data and devices | TechCrunch

"Google Cloud launched a new Internet of Things management service today called Google Cloud IoT Core that provides a way for companies to manage IoT devices and process data being generated by those devices.

A transportation or logistics firm, for example, could use this service to collect data from its vehicles and combine it with other information like weather, traffic and demand to place the right vehicles at the right place at the right time."
