How To Bind C++ Code with Dotnet Core
While you are working with compiled code, you often find yourself in the situation that every bit of performance count (just think about GPU intensive operations or even game engines).

Well, my preference goes towards languages containing brackets (C#, JS, ...) rather than having pure identations (Python), making me want to try .NET Core for this.
