ASP.NET Core is the next generation of ASP.NET MVC. It’s a complete re-write of this framework but in a modular, cloud-optimized and cross-platform way. So it can run on Windows, Linux and Mac. If you’re on Mac or Linux and want to build ASP.NET applications without running Windows in a virtual machine, you’re going to love ASP.NET Core! You can use Visual Studio Code (VSCode) or your favorite code editor to build ASP.NET Core applications with C#. Say goodbye to VMWare, Parallels, and other virtualization software.
Many companies have already started building their new applications with ASP.NET Core. And they’re asking their new interviewees if they are familiar with .NET Core. So, whether you want to stay in the marketplace and get a better job with better pay, or you just love to work with the latest technology, it’s time to learn about ASP.NET Core and Entity Framework Core.
In this course, I teach you how to build a real-world application with ASP.NET Core, Entity Framework Core and Angular. If you’re familiar with ASP.NET MVC 5 and Entity Framework 6 and are looking for a course to quickly get up to speed with .NET core, this is the course for you. Not only will you learn about the changes and the new tooling in ASP.NET Core, you’ll also learn how to properly integrate it with Angular to build real-world single page applications (SPAs).
A REAL-WORLD APP
The app you build in this course is for an imaginary vehicle dealer. I’ve carefully designed the features in this app to help you master the core skills you need to build real-world apps with ASP.NET Core and Angular.
By the end of watching this course, you’ll be able to:
- Build APIs with ASP.NET Core
- Test APIs with PostMan
- Integrate Angular and ASP.NET Core
- Implement a clean and decoupled architecture
- Understand and apply the Dependency Inversion Principle (DIP)
- Properly implement the repository and unit of work patterns
- Use the new dependency injection feature in ASP.NET Core
- Troubleshoot common runtime errors
- Store and retrieve data with Entity Framework Core (code-first workflow)
- Use AutoMapper
- Implement CRUD operations (including one-to-many and many-to-many relationships)
- Implement filtering, sorting and paging data
- Handle and logging errors
- Display toast notifications
- Implement cascading drop-down lists
- Implement photo upload with progress bars
- Add authentication and authorization with Auth0 (including roles with different privileges)
- Display charts
- And more…
On top of all these, you’ll learn how to write quality code, not just how to build apps. There are a lot of developers out there who can build apps but they write poor quality code. I show you how to refactor bad code into clean, maintainable and quality code. I also share my knowledge and 15 years of experience about software design and architecture. So this course is more than just technology. It teaches you how to think like a software engineer.
These are the essential skills that you take with you to nearly every real-world project. Whether you want to get prepared for a job interview or simply want to take your coding skills to the next level, this course is the means to the destination.
There are two ways to build ASP.NET Core applications. You can use Visual Studio 2017 or Visual Studio Code, a light-weight cross-platform code editor. In this course, I use VSCode and the command-line to build an app, but what you learn can be applied in Visual Studio 2017 as well.
WHO THIS COURSE IS FOR
In order to take this course, you should have at least 3 months experience with ASP.NET MVC 5, Entity Framework 6 and Angular 2 (or higher).
