ASP.NET Core MVC Visual Studio 2015 – 2 Days
Course Description – ASP.NET Core MVC
This ASP.NET Core MVC training course provides a practical hands-on introduction to developing Web applications using ASP.NET Core MVC 6 and C#. This Web development framework from Microsoft emphasizes separation of concerns in the architecture and testability of applications. This course covers development on Microsoft’s new .NET Core platform.
Structuring of the .NET platform, .NET Core is cross-platform, open source, and modular designed for creating modern web applications and services, libraries and console applications. It is available on Windows, Mac and Linux. .NET now is a family of frameworks, including both the classical .NET available on Windows and the new .NET Core package-based frameworks that are cross-platform.
This course covers the fundamentals of the Model-View-Controller design pattern and its implementation in ASP.NET Core MVC. This technology is compared with classical ASP.NET Web Forms. Visual Studio 2015 with .NET Core 1.0 is used as a productive platform for creating ASP.NET Core MVC applications. After presenting the fundamentals of the technology with several examples, the main components of Model, Controller and View are covered in detail. The discussion of the Model incorporates Microsoft technologies for persisting data, including XML Serialization and ADO.NET with SQL Server 2014. The routing mechanism of ASP.NET MVC is covered. The course includes an introduction to ASP.NET Web API.
Numerous programming examples and exercises are provided. The student will receive a comprehensive set of notes and all the programming examples.
