Introduction to ASP.NET Core MVC

Course Overview

This 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. The course is current to .NET Core 2.0, which is a major update of the original .NET Core 1.0. Working with .NET Core is now simpler, as project information is consolidated in project files without the need for source JSON files. Also, the .NET Core 2.0 API has been extended and is a much larger subset of classical .NET than in .NET Core 1.0.

Who Should Attend

The student should have a good working knowledge of C# and the .NET Framework. Basic knowledge of HTML and some prior exposure to .NET Core would also be helpful.
