Description

After 15 years of ASP.NET, Microsoft has introduced the most radical change to the framework with the introduction of ASP.NET Core. ASP.NET Core is a complete new framework in which many concepts have changed. In this course, Building Your First ASP.NET Core Web Application, you'll learn how you can build a fully working website with ASP.NET Core, Bethany's Pie Shop. First, you'll start from scratch and you can follow along to build the entire solution in a practical way. Next, you'll learn about the project structure and project files and will see how the application is built up starting from the model and the database using Entity Framework Core. Then, you'll learn about controllers, how routing is handled in ASP.NET Core, and how you'll build several views using the new tag helpers and Razor. Finally, you'll explore what Dependency Injection is and why it plays a central role in ASP.NET Core and when the app is ready, you'll deploy it to Azure. At the end of this course, you'll have built a real-life application and that will give you a solid understanding of the ASP.NET core platform. You can use the application as a starting point for your own websites you'll want to build after finishing this course.

Hi everyone, my name is Gill Cleeren and welcome to my course Building your first ASP.NET Core Web Application.

I’m a solution architect for web and mobile projects.

.NET Core is the future of the .NET framework, it’s where all investment from Microsoft will go to from now on. Since its inception about 15 years ago, this is the biggest change ever made to .NET and ASP.NET.

In this course, we are going to create together a fully-working, real-world web shop with the new version of ASP.NET Core MVC, starting from File New Project all the way to the deployment of the site in Azure.

Some of the major topics that we will cover include:

  • The ASP.NET Core MVC Framework
  • How you can build a real-world application with ASP.NET Core MVC
  • The new features of ASP.NET Core such as Tag Helpers and View Components
  • Working with client-side script to invoke web API class
  • Deployment of the site to Azure
By the end of this course you’ll know how you can build a complete web application with this new version of ASP.NET Core and you’ll also have an overview of everything that was added to the platform.

Before beginning the course you should be familiar with some basic web development skills, no ASP.NET MVC knowledge is required.

I hope you’ll join me on this journey to learn ASP.NET Core MVC with the Building your first ASP.NET Core Web application course, at Pluralsight.
