I went into this exercise thinking this would be a tough challenge. However, it turns out to be a very simple process. It’s just prepare, download, unpack, configure, and roll with it.
First make sure that your Raspberry Pi is running the latest software updates with this command:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
Once that is done, we need to install libunwind8
sudo apt-get install libunwind8
That’s it for prepare.
Next from the command prompt run this command to get the latest build of .NET Core 3:
Create a folder in your home directory called dotnet:
Then unpack the contents of the .NET SDK into that folder
tar xzf dotnet-sdk-latest-linux-arm.tar.gz -C $HOME/dotnet
Update the .bashrc file to include these lines:
Restart your console session.
Roll With It
First let’s make sure it works with this command:
Now that we have it installed let’s try it out. Create a directory called hello-world and change to that directory. Next run the following command:
dotnet new console
This will scaffold out a new console application for you. Type:
And that’s it!

So I thought I’d revisit this blog because it is now a year later, and it’s a pretty popular post. I tried this again thinking I was getting .NET Core 3.1, but instead I got .NET 5 Preview 3! I followed all the steps above except for installing libunwind8 and everything worked great!
