Course description

Microsoft introduced ASP.NET as a way to organize and write web applications and services using the .NET framework. Originally released with the WebForms pattern, which takes a control based drag and drop approach to designing a web page, it has since included many new technologies like MVC which support scaffolding, and WebAPI to handle RESTful requests. While these new technologies are quite powerful and deliver new ways of writing code, the challenge has been how to integrate them and build one solution. With that in mind, in .NET 4.5.1 and Visual Studio 2013 Microsoft has been pushing a new unified template for web projects called OneASP.NET. With this new template developers can create web solutions that start with WebForms, but include MVC features. Or a WebAPI site that adds WebForms. Additionally there is a new identity story that simplifies and modernizes how we handle authentication and profile data. Developers now have the choice of whether to use public identity like twitter or facebook, or use Active Directory, in addition to the old standbys. Lets dive into what's new for web developers with an overview of ASP.NET.


This course assumes that students understand Visual C# 5.0 syntax, and have a basic understanding of the .NET Framework. No specific experience with Visual Studio 2013 is required.
