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.
My involvement in the Visual Studio 2017 Launch event came about through a partnership between Treehouse and Microsoft (specifically the .NET team). For more information about the event, see my post on the Treehouse blog.
Getting Started with ASP.NET Core in Visual Studio 2017
ASP.NET Core is an open-source (github.com/aspnet/home) and cross-platform framework for building modern web apps using .NET. It is a significant redesign of ASP.NET that is built from the ground up to provide an optimized development framework for apps that are either deployed to the cloud or run on-premises. You can develop and run your ASP.NET Core apps cross-platform on Windows, Mac, and Linux.
In this module, we’ll create a simple app using both the .NET Core command-line interface (CLI) and the latest tooling available in Visual Studio 2017. Along the way, we’ll also take a look at some of the key new concepts and features that are part of ASP.NET Core and how they compare to the ASP.NET that you know and love.
Exploring and Migrating to TypeScript
Luckily, benefiting from TypeScript doesn’t require you to migrate your entire project to TypeScript. You can benefit from TypeScript by making incremental changes to your project.
