I am a newbie in .NET and today I have come to learn about ASP.NET Core 2.
The thing is that I have problem with all the ASP.NET MVC 5 tutorial, whether is database first or code first etc.
So, can I know if it is advisable for me to start from ASP.NET Core 2 without prior knowledge on all the asp.net ?
Hope to have some advice.

My answer is YES YOU CAN! ASP.NET Core is now RC2. Next week, the RTM 1.0 will be released exactly on the 27th of June.
All the Core Framework is written from scratch. So, it is an opportunity for us to start learn it.
All the official docs are here : http://docs.asp.net
There is an update every week on the work in progress on the framework (announcements, discussions, Q&A, changes, ...) : https://live.asp.net
You have this forum also for asking any question about ASP.NET Core.
I recommand this course to start with the fundamentals: https://app.pluralsight.com/library/courses/aspdotnet-core-1-0-fundamentals/table-of-contents
You also could refer to my blog :-) http://www.maherjendoubi.io/ . I'm planning to do a series of blog post articles about how to get started with fundamentals.
I also started talking about dotnet cli on Windows and Linux (CentOS).
There are multiple channels on Slack where the community discussing ASP.NET Core features : https://aspnetcore.slack.com
Hope that could help!

Note though that this is one is really brand new (release candidate) and is basically a fulll rewrite/redesign so to me the real question is if you'll take advantage of its unique capabilities (ie cross platform or Windows Nanoserver deployment). If not
I consider still perfectly valid to start with ASP.NET 4.x/MVC 5 which is Windows only but comes with a 14 years+ ecosystem.
So it depends also if you are just learning or if you have some kind of near term objectives as well as if you feel comfortable with having to go maybe sometimes through some hiccups while waiting for this new ASP.NET ecosystem to catch up a bit its older

Thank you, Maherjendoub.
I hope .Net Core is less problematic.
Keep my fingers crossed :)

If you are really a beginner, I honestly hope you wait till Visual Studio vNext is released. Good IDE support can get you started more smoothly, than working directly with a code editor and without proper IntelliSense. I know others are promoting it so fiercely
even to beginners, but I definitely cannot agree.
