Welcome to season 4 of the award-winning .NET Core Podcast! Check that link for proof.

The .NET Core Podcast is podcast where we reach into the core of the .NET technology stack and, with the help of the .NET community, present you with the information that you need in order to grok the many moving parts of one of the biggest cross-platform, multi-application frameworks on the planet.

I am your host, Jamie "GaProgMan" Taylor. In this episode, I wanted to share with you all an edited version of a talk that I gave at the Orlando .NET User Group back in January. The talk is about some of the things that I wish I knew about before I started wrtiing .NET on Linux. I've used Linux-based operating systems on my computers for around 10 years, and using Windows only when I need to. This is a personal choice, but with the prevalence of "Linux on the desktop", I thought that I would share some advice and experience for those who are looking to use a Linux desktop as a development environment.

As I said earlier, this is recording is taken from a talk that I gave at the Orlando .NET User Group. I would recommend joining this group, as they are wonderfully approachable and have lots of very interesting talks. As with a lot of meetup groups, they are currently hosting their events online, so you don't necessarily have to be in Orlando to attend. I'll leave a link to the meetup group, the video version of my talk, and the slide deck in the show notes.
