There are a number of flavors of ASP.NET, for example, Web Forms (Web Sites and Web Applications), Model-View-Controller (MVC), and the newest one Core. This course is aimed at anyone who wants to create dynamic websites with ASP.NET WebForms. ASP.NET is the Microsoft platform for developing Web Applications. Using ASP.NET you can create e-commerce sites, data-driven portals, and just about anything else you can find on the internet. Best of all, you don’t need to paste together a jumble of HTML and script code. Instead, you can create full-scale web apps using nothing but code (C#) and a design tool like Visual Studio.
In recent years Microsoft has added MVC (Model View Controller) and Core which offer different ways to build dynamic web pages. To some MVC and Core are cleaner and more suited to the web. To others it’s a whole lot of extra effort with no clear payoff. Either way, you need a strong knowledge of basic ASP.NET before moving onto the newer technologies….
NEW … Major Course Update as of Feb 2020 … Three new sections ( 50 new lectures ) which focus on transitioning to MVC and then Core Razor Pages
Here’s how I will help you to succeed:
o Each lecture starts with a list of objectives/speaking notes
o Every example covered in the lecture is available for download in the resources section … including the objectives/speaking notes
o Almost every lecture has a set of Practice problems with full solutions provided
o My style of writing and teaching follows the KISS principle : Keep It Super Simple. I try to stay away from fancy computer terminology and try to teach like am speaking to a brand new user with little to no previous knowledge on the subject matter…. and I am always available for help … replying most times within a day.
