David Fowler and Scott Hanselman on ASP.NET vNext

Hi everyone, last week we announced ASP.NET vNext to the world at TechEd North America. All the sessions videos are up and available for downloading on Channel 9! There are still many MANY months between this early alpha that we've shared and release, so I'd encourage you all to subscribe to the .NET Web Development blog. This is a group blog, from and by the ASP.NET and Azure Web Tools team. It's an excellent and unfiltered group blog that everyone contributes to. Also follow the team on Twitter @aspnet and Facebook as we post there regularly.

We also released Visual Studio 2013.2 so be sure to go get that free update.

While everyone's jazzed about ASP.NET vNext, there's a lot of cool new stuff you can do TODAY with ASP.NET, like:

OK, here's the videos from TechEd.

We've also updated the ASP.NET site with all new vNext content and walkthroughs.

Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoy piling through these posts and watching these videos. We sure have had fun (and continue to!) building all this. Remember, all the code is at

"There are still many MANY months" so... couple=2, many>couple, so many=3. However, MANY>many, therefore "many MANY"~=3+4. So we're looking at 7 months, or around Xmas for release? Am I close? ;-)

Hi Scott,

You're an amazing presenter! Just watched both videos, and your sense of humor combined with an ability to steer presentations around the questions (and fears!) that developers have about new technologies is really fantastic to watch. Thank you!

Why would an enterprise choose to self-host as opposed to continue hosting in IIS? The ability to self-host is made clear but the use-case is not.

Thank you for your answer, but I told about CoreClr.
As I understood CoreClr part of .Net vNext also will be open source.

What I Like:
- ASP.NET (all the newest Versions)
-- MVC
-- Web API
-- SignalR
-- EF
-- Identity
-- VS
-- most samples
What I MISS and this is a suggestion only:
Is a generic CMS build with the components above. Everyone will need a CMS when using the new ASP.NET components. A sample that builds a common usable CMS would show how to use the components listed above efficiently, because it could be the foundation for anyones further work. So learning becomes more fun, because the everyone could use the sample generic CMS in practice.
Well I know there are lots of good CMS available. But none uses the Current Versions of the above components. They cannot. These CMS has all build prior the New ASP.NET environment. And they are all to big. They connot change so much fast.
So - PLEASE make a basic, generic CMS as Sample and Foundation for everyones further work available. (The Music Store sample could be a PlugIns for it)

You should really get those Visual Studio guys to add an "Open command prompt here"-thing in the Solution Explorer or somewhere. Would make our lives easier and make for less copying and pasting of directory paths in your talks :)

Already have it in Explorer by default (shift+right-click on a folder). Super handy!

@Inquirer The main use case I've seen is to embed an HTTP endpoint in a console application, so you can interact with say a long-running windows service via HTTP instead of having to call the standard Start(), Stop(), Pause(), etc methods on the service. It is possible in this way to remotely administer/configure without munging config files and all that jazz.

Hi Scott

I downloaded VS Update 2 (RTM) this week. I noticed that the "template" for creating the proxy stub for interaction between side-loaded Windows RT app and desktop/legacy/native .net component is not available in VS Update 2 as a template. It needs to be downloaded as "VS Extensions > Templates > Brokered WinRT Component Project Templates" from MSDN. Any reason why it is not part of VS...Will it be part VS vNext for any reason.

BTW great teched 2014.
