## TheSharperDev

A site containing some of Morgan’s thoughts

In case you haven’t heard, .Net Core 3.0 has now been released! So many things are now available as part of this release.

I feel like I could just keep going on and on.

With all those changes, one small thing I’m glad to see is the addition of a AddControllers() method in the Startup.cs file.

## .Net Core 2.2 And Before

I consider myself an API developer. A lot of times when I want to work with C# I create an API project using the following command.

dotnet new webapi

Then if you open up the Startup.cs file you would see something similar to this:

AddMvc()? I created a webapi project but now I have an Mvc dependencies? Why is that?

That always confused me. I know you’re able to manually pick the right dependencies, but why is this the default experience?

## .Net Core 3.0

However, if you download .Net Core 3.0 and create the same project, this is now what you’ll see.

Now I’m only including the dependencies that I really need for my project. So much better!

No changes have been made to the AddMvc() method, so if you need Mvc support by all means keep using it.

## Closing Thoughts

I’m obviously very excited about a lot of the new 3.0 features, but sometimes it’s small changes like this that really have me looking forward to the future of .Net.
