In part 1 of this blog series, I began the process of porting a sample WPF app to .NET Core. In that post, I described the .NET Core migration process as having four steps:

Those of you who have been following .NET development closely have very likely seen Scott Hunter’s latest blog post, .NET Core is the Future of .NET.
The first preview of the EF 6.3 runtime is now available in NuGet.
Note that the package is versioned as 6.3.0-preview5. We plan to continue releasing previews of EF 6.3 every month in alignment with the .NET Core 3.0 previews, until we ship the final version.
