As we near the end of 2017 and head into the new year, it’s important to take time for reflection. Reflecting back on the past year will help you to refine and adjust your learning efforts so that you can effectively plan and set goals for the new year.
So you’ve mastered the basics of creating web pages and forms using Microsoft’s ASP.NET MVC web framework. What do you do next? Time to learn how to leverage the power of databases in your web apps!
I presented two sessions this week as part of the live training for the Visual Studio 2017 Launch event. The videos for these sessions are now available on demand via Microsoft’s Channel 9.
On March 7th and 8th, Microsoft will host a special online event to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Visual Studio and the release of Visual Studio 2017. Day one (3/7) will feature keynotes from Julia Liuson, Brian Harry, Miguel de Icaza, and Scott Hanselman along with interactive technical demo sessions with Microsoft engineers. Day two (3/8) will feature a full day of live interactive training organized into two tracks.
