Abstract

Microsoft announced a new cross-platform ASP.NET framework which promises to appease those seeking modularization and performance improvements. Out with the kitchen sink that is the System.Web assembly, and in with the new. Couple this with a lightweight, cross-platform code editor which comprehends ASP.NET Core 1.0, and developers around the world rejoice. So let’s dive in! Open Visual Studio Code, and choose File -> New -> Project, right? Not quite!

This talk will explore how to get started with ASP.NET Core 1.0, from the ground up, using Visual Studio Code. Along the way, we’ll discuss new features and how to take advantage of them in your applications.

Abstract

We’ll take a look at a completely open source web stack including Angular, TypeScript/JavaScript, Gulp, Bower, NPM, and Yeoman. We’ll use Visual Studio Code, the cross-platform text editor. Finally, we’ll put our code in GitHub, use Travis CI to for our builds, and deploy it all to the cloud. If all of this frightens you, don’t worry, it’s easier than you might think, and completely free. Even if you have to integrate with an existing solution such as ASP.NET MVC, there is something here for you.
