Description

This course provides a tour of what's new in Visual Studio 2012 for ASP.NET Web Forms developers and how it can make you more productive as a developer. The course begins by showing you key enhancements to Visual Studio's HTML editor and its improved support for working with CSS and JavaScript. Next, you’ll explore what's new with data binding (some significant features have been added here) including model binding and strongly typed data controls. You’ll also see enhancements that have been made to the ASP.NET framework such as bundling and minification of JavaScript and CSS, asynchronous modules and handlers, SignalR and more. Several new HTML5 features are also demonstrated including new HTML5 input types, Web Sockets and support for multiple file uploads. The course concludes with a look at important security-related improvements in ASP.NET including support for OAuth, request validation and support for preventing cross-site request forgery (XSRF) attacks.

Visual Studio Features
Welcome to the New Features in ASP. NET 4. 5 Web Forms course. My name's Dan Wahlin with Pluralsight and in this course we're going to focus 100% on what's new in Visual Studio 2012 and in the ASP. NET 4. 5 Web Forms framework. Now, if you're new to ASP. NET then I'd recommend you watch the Introduction to ASP. NET WebForms course that myself and Fritz Onion put together first, but if you have ASP. NET experience already, then you're in the right place. We're going to focus on all the great features that are available. So, we'll start off by covering some new productivity enhancements in Visual Studio 2012. We're going to cover things ranging from the HTML editor enhancements, CSS enhancements, and even JavaScript. And talk about how you'll be more productive, write less code, and be able to get more done and also be able to find things more easily as you type. I'll also introduce some plugins you can use. It'll enhance productivity as well. From there we'll talk about one of my favorite topics and that's data. ASP. NET has always been very good at working with data and this release doesn't disappoint at all. In fact, there's some very significant enhancements such as model binding, strongly-typed data controls, enhancing coding, and more that we'll be covering here. From there we're going to talk about several different framework features ranging from bundling and minifi cation of JavaScript and CSS files, WebSockets, SignalR, the ASP. NET Web API and the functionality it offers, as well as a few other things along the way. Next up will be HTML5 Features. Obviously HTML5 is very, very popular these days and ASP. NET has some enhancements, such as direct support for HTML5 input elements. And we'll talk about how to work with those, validate them with the validator controls, and some other HTML5 specific enhancements along the way. And finally, we'll talk about Security Features that are built into ASP. NET 4. 5. We'll talk about OAuth and how you can integrate with external sites like Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft, Google, and others. We'll go into some validated and un-validated request validation and explain how you can get more granular as data is posted back that might have HTML content in it. And we'll even talk about how ASP. NET can help you prevent cross-site request forgery attacks. So, there's a lot of great stuff to cover. Let's go ahead and jump in and start talking about what's new in Visual Studio.
