ASP.NET Core Workshop with the ASP.NET Monsters

James Chambers and Simon Timms

Monday, June 5 2017

Blazingly fast, cross platform, standards compliant, easily testable, fab. None of these are things you'd normally associate with ASP.NET but the times they are a changing. ASP.NET Core is a ground up rewrite of ASP.NET which focuses on hauling the venerable ASP.NET into the modern world of web development to compete with the likes of Elixr Phoenix and the various Go based frameworks. At the same time the concepts are not that different from those which have been around for years in the ASP.NET world, smoothing the learning curve. Join the ASP.NET Monsters as they walk though a condensed one day course on ASP.NET Core covering

  • An introduction to ASP.NET MVC (Models and model validation, Controllers, Razor for Views)
  • Dependency injection
  • Unit testing
  • Configuration
  • Writing reusable web components
  • Entity Framework Core
  • Deploying to Azure

Participants must bring a laptop, Windows, Linux or OSX - it doesn't matter.
