  • When will we be able to use Visual C++ under Mac?

  • In the section, Creating an ASP.NET Core App. "I navigate into the Cloud section, choose the ASP.NET Core Web Application template, and click Next, then choose the Web API template. The Web API template creates a RESTful Web service which is perfect for a mobile back end, though you can add views to the project later to create a Web front end."

    The "Cloud section" doesn't exist for me.   I choose '.Net Core' thinking that is want was meant, but it lacks the ability to select the 'Web API template'.

    I must be missing something.
