Microsoft has built a rich ecosystem around the various flavors of ASP.NET – MVC, Web API and even WebForms have a place in the modern web development world. So what the heck is up with ASP.NET Core anyways? Microsoft has flipped the ASP.NET world on its head with this fast, cross-platform web framework, designed from the ground up with developers from all walks of life in mind – and the change isn’t as scary as you think.
In this session, we’ll learn about ASP.NET Core and its design philosophies. We’ll learn how to leverage several popular development tools frequently used by developers outside of the ASP.NET ecosystem, including Gulp, Bower, Node and NPM, to build and run our application. Finally, we’ll use Visual Studio Code to create and run our very first ASP.NET Core project (on a Mac no less!)
For current ASP.NET developers, we’ll also touch on the portability of your current ASP.NET code.
