Are you confused over if you should learn ASP.NET MVC  5 or ASP.NET MVC Core?

Such questions are obvious when new technology comes up in the market, most importantly to take over its predecessor.

Although everyone have tendency to learn everything as soon as it comes in the market, without considering the other important facts.

Here I am providing few of those facts you should consider before deciding, which one should you learn.

  • ASP.NET Core transition/adoption is still very low except for the brand new projects.
  • Plenty of projects were developed on MVC 5 in past 3-4 years, are in maintenance phase. So most of companies are still looking for candidates having experience in MVC-5.
  • There are fewer jobs in MVC Core at present. However the number of jobs expected to increase for new framework in coming future.
  • This is still in evolving phase and every other month new versions are appearing in market.

if you want to be the most well-rounded developer. I would encourage you to learn both at the same time. In that way you understand the differences between both.
