Lessons Learnt: Migrating From Net Framework to Net Core - Part 1 Introduction

I'm nearing the end of a major project in my work. Taking a number of our essential services running on IoT devices and porting them from running on Windows x64 over to Linux Arm; whilst still maintaining backwards compatability and still running these services on the existing Windows devices. This may sound like a daunting and major undertaking but actually it hasn't been too bad, it's very possible and the benefits of doing this, for us at least, are significant.

What I want to do over my next couple of blog posts is to highlight lessons I learnt during the process, thing's I wish I hadn't done / wish I had known before I started as well as any other things to takeaway from this.

As this will form a mini series of posts I'll keep a list of all posts updated below and maintain this on subsequent posts.
