What you'll learn

In this course you’ll learn to build a HTML5 line-of-business application that allows users to add data to the system even while the application is working in an offline context. You’ll see how to begin from scratch and use Entity Framework Code First to create a database based off model objects as well as maintain tables for the ASP.NET WebPages Simple Membership API. You’ll learn to build a Web API layer to expose the application’s data and secure aspects of the API using authentication and authorization rules. Further you’ll learn to build views using Bootstrap, Knockout.js, Underscore.js and HTML5 offline apps and validation APIs. Finally, you’ll see how to add ELMAH to the application in order to log exceptions and keep you informed of the health of your application.
