Description

Hello! My name is Kevin Dockx, and welcome to Building Your First API with ASP.NET Core. In this course, you will learn how to build an API with ASP.NET Core that connects to a database via Entity Framework Core. You will get there by covering major topics like getting resources from services and manipulating them, the built-in dependency injection system & logger, working with different environments, configuration files and middleware, and Entity Framework Core related features like working with migrations and seeding the database. By the end of this course, you will be able to build an API from scratch with ASP.NET Core. Before you begin, make sure you are already familiar with C#. I hope you’ll join me, and I look forward to helping you on your learning journey here at Pluralsight.
