Building Your First ASP.NET Core Application Hi! This is Scott, and this course will help you build your first application with ASP. NET Core. In this course, we'll be using Visual Studio and the new ASP. NET Framework to build a web application that can display and edit restaurant information. I'm assuming you already know how to work with the C# language and can get around in Visual Studio. We'll spend our time together focusing on the new ASP. NET. In this first module, I'll show you the environment that I'm using, and we'll get our first project started.
Startup and Middleware Hi! This is Scott, and in this module, we're going to move forward with our application and set up our middleware. Middleware in ASP. NET controls how our application responds to HTTP requests. It can also control how our application looks when there is an error, and it's a key piece in how we authenticate and authorize a user to perform specific actions. We will learn a little bit about middleware in this module and how to set up the middleware during application startup. And by the end of this module, we will have a processing pipeline that allows us to use ASP. NET MVC.
Models in the MVC Framework Hi! This is Scott, and in this module, we're going to take a closer look at models in the MVC framework and working with data in general. We will look at the concept of a view model, both the input and output view models, as well as how to work with the Entity Framework to save our restaurant information into a SQL Server database. To get started, let's talk about the concept of a view model.
Using the Entity Framework Hi! This is Scott, and in this module, we're going to set up and configure our application to save and read data from a SQL Server database. To work with a database, we're going to use the Entity Framework, which is freshly rewritten to work with the new. NET Framework, although if you have worked with EF in the past, you'll see many familiar pieces. To get started, let's first talk about your SQL Server installation.
Razor Views Hi! This is Scott, and in this module we will be focused on features of the Razor view engine. Although we've already been using Razor to render HTML with our model data sprinkled inside, we can make some improvements to the application by using some features we have not looked at yet and some features that are brand new for this version of MVC. The first feature we will look at is a feature to give us a more consistent structure across the application. And this feature is the Layout view feature.
ASP.NET Identity Hi! This is Scott, and in this module we will set up the ASP. NET Identity framework to implement forms authentication. There are many options to choose from for identifying your users including Windows Authentication and all of the third-party identity providers like Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and GitHub. We're going to choose and focus on building up a traditional forms authentication scheme from scratch so we can understand the primary pieces of the Identity framework. Let's start with an overview.
