Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Fast to get results
Inside LiveCode's IDE you can build for OSX, Linux and Windows, and (making use of Xcode and the Android SDK) for iOS and Android too
Pro Extremely simple to get started
Single-click install of entire development environment, and all-in-one IDE makes it easy to go from visually layout out a user interface to writing code to power it to creating your own single-file applications.
Pro GUI-driven development
In LiveCode, you start by dropping GUI elements into place, then add the code that makes them function. This lets beginners see visual results right away, which is often more exciting (especially for young students). It also lets you focus on the user interaction before you get into the nitty-gritty of code implementation.
Pro Approachable yet capable language
Pro Highest ROI compared to other popular cross-platform development tools
Fluid production - from prototyping to delivery in one toolkit. With a high-level language that includes GUI controls as native elements, code more directly expresses the end-user experience. And the platform coverage is awesome, nearly unmatched.
The framework has many build-in tools, and many packages have been written targeting the framework.
Pro Cross platform
.Net Core can work on any platform.
Pro Widely used
It's pretty easy to find a job with it and there's plenty of documentation and tutorials around.
Pro Extensive documentation
There are a lot of resources available to get help.
Asp.NET Core on Linux is fast accordingly to TechEmpower benchmarks.
Pro Asp.NET core provides balance between magic/agility and craftsmanship
You can get ordinary details quickly but with complete freedom to make your craft, knowing everything that is happening underneath the cloths. The highly modular system makes it possible to scale small applications to large ones with ease.
Pro It has more users than any other backend web framework
Getting your next contract is easy with this on your CV.
Con fringe use
Con Poor ecosystem
Not a mainstream programming language.
Con Core and full ASP.NET are bit confusing sometimes
While not in feature parity (yet) they are still apart and support sometimes funky combinations of features - full ASP.NET has all the bells and whistles but doesn't offer cross platform so you may have to do some research what you really need. That being said, it got a lot better in 2.0.
