Hosting .Net Core in C++

One of the things that came out of my conversations with clients last night was an interest in hosting .Net Core from native code.

Of course we already host the CLR and provide an easy way to write servers that do the heavy lifting in native code and call out to managed code for the business logic. We have several clients using this to host managed “plugins” inside a native host and it works very well.

Hopefully hosting .Net Core won’t be that different. It looks like you can skip the whole meta host thing and just load it up directly from a DLL. More details as we explore…
