ASP.NET Core Web Development

You must bring a laptop. Don’t forget that power supply. We recommend more than 1 Gb of RAM and at least 10 Gb of free disk space. We will help you get organized and install the right software for continued virtual fun! We have wireless Internet access so you can download on-site.

We revisit ASP.NET Core for three months prior to its summer release. There is a lab series from the Microsoft //build conference that will serve as our guide:

Please download the Zip file for this lab. You will also need ASP.NET 5 RC which is on this page:

https://get.asp.net/

Use the link on the right to install the latest build of ASP.NET Core (the artish formerly known as ASP.NET 5).

We begin in Module 1 with a quick run through of an MVC site template to demonstrate what has changed from the ASP.NET we all know and love. This includes new folder structures, Bower and Gulp dependencies, a new config system, new hosting options, and some command line goodness. Module 2 builds from an empty website as we add static files, mvc support, middleware, and authentication.

You will need Visual Studio 2015 (any version) with the latest ASP.NET Core release.
