Wow – so many new things to learn for the traditional ASP.NET Web Developer! Angular is about to reach version 4 in March. ASP.NET Core is a new framework where the SDK is still undergoing major changes. And Visual Studio Code is a major departure from the comforts of Visual Studio with its own advantages and quirks. There are great resources that teach the fundamentals of each of these frameworks in isolation. But how do you put them together? This talk takes a look at what’s going on with each of these technologies and gives you a roadmap for navigating the complexity of integrating them. You’ll gain a better understanding of where the boundary is between the client and server in applications using Angular and ASP.NET Core. You’ll also learn how to use the best of ASP.NET Core and Angular tooling in Visual Studio Code. There will be a lot to cover so strap in for a fun and educational ride.
