Building Modern Web Apps with ASP.NET - A new day of free ASP.NET Training for 2014
Last year, about this time, a bunch of us sat down in a studio to give a full day of tutorials and discussion on "Building Web Apps with ASP.NET." All those videos are online and have lots of good content like:
- 1: What's New in ASP.NET 4.5
- 2: Building and Deploying Websites with ASP.NET MVC 4
- 3: Creating HTML5 Applications with jQuery
- 4: Building a Service Layer with ASP.NET Web API
- 5: Leveraging Your ASP.NET Development Skills to Build Office Apps
- 6: Building and Leveraging Social Services in ASP.NET
- 7: Building for the Mobile Web
- 8: Real-time Communication with SignalR
- 9: Taking Advantage of Windows Azure Services
We headed over to the Microsoft Virtual Academy Studios again just this last week for another full day of discussion, training, as well as a glimpse into the possible future of .NET. Between these two days of videos you'll get a real sense of what's possible and real advice on how to build your next web application.
Today we've got 7 all-new segments for you, each recorded live at the MS Studios.
- 1: What's New in Visual Studio 2013 for Web Developers
- 2: Upgrading Applications
- 3: ASP.NET Identity
- 4: Web Essentials and the Client Side
- 5: Entity Framework
- 6: Katana Project
- 7: ASP.NET "Project Helios"
These videos are featuring folks like Scott Hunter, Levi Broderick, Rowan Miller, Pranav Rastogi, Mads Kristensen, and Louis DeJardin. No marketing folks, just actual developers that work on ASP.NET every day.
