Free Training at Microsoft Virtual Academy - Introduction to ASP.NET 5
In 2013, Jon Galloway, Damian Edwards, and myself went up to film a LIVE 8 hour long Microsoft Virtual Academy training session called "Building Web Apps with ASP.NET Jump Start." We returned in 2014 with "Building Modern Web Apps with ASP.NET." Both of these are free, and are effectively a full day each of content.
Just a few weeks back here in September of 2015, we recorded "Introduction to ASP.NET 5." This is 100 to 200 level beginner content that starts at the beginning. If you're just getting started with ASP.NET 5 (currently in Beta) or perhaps you have been meaning to dig into the new stuff in ASP.NET 5 but haven't gotten around to it, this a good place to start.
Introduction to ASP.NET 5
- Introduction to ASP.NET 5
- Introduction to Visual Studio
- Introducing Model View Controller (MVC6)
- Getting Started with Models, Views, and Controllers
- Debugging Web Applications
- Configuration Data
- Publishing Your Application
- Using Data with Entity Framework
In the final three segments, we work with Damian Edwards to dissect every line of code in the real-world cloud-deployed application that runs our weekly standup at http://live.asp.net.
- Exploring live.asp.net
- Managing Data on live.asp.net
- Advanced Features in live.asp.net
It's a full day of detailed video training with assessments after each video. You can seek around, of course, or download the videos for offline viewing. We are pretty happy with how it turned out.
We'll be returning to Microsoft Virtual Academy over the next several months to record 300-400 level advanced content as well as a Cross-Platform specific show for Mac and Linux users who want to develop and deploy ASP.NET applications. I hope you enjoyed it, we all worked very hard on it.
