I've been updating the CoreCodeCamp project (the basis for the Atlanta Code Camp's website) for this year's Code Camp. Most of the changes are under the covers, but I wanted to talk about what I learned.
The goal of the upgrade was two-fold: upgrade to .NET Core 2.2; and move the Vue.js code to Vue CLI (to improve loading performance). It also allowed me to do some rudamentary clean I've wanted to do. On to the lessons...
I’m very excited that the v2 of ASP.NET Core is now released. Married with Visual Studio 2017 Update 3 (or VS Core), it is now a maturing platform.
I really like what the team has been doing since the release of 1.0. They seem to really have thought about the pain points of the initial versions and worked to eliminate as many as they could.
I had the opportunity to teach both VueJS and Visual Studio Code for the attendees. As promised, here is the code and the slides from the event!
Developers are an odd beast. Some developers love a big IDE and lots of automation to help them create great solutions.
The other type of developer, wants to write code quickly and spends a lot of time at the command-line. Luckily, Microsoft supports both types of developer.
I love this conference because the attendees are so plugged in and I get great questions every time I do a talk there. I want to thank everyone for coming to see me talk on ASP.NET Core even though I had lost my voice. We muscled through though and hopefully some people are digging in deeper with it now.
But now that we’re in ASP.NET Core 1.1 (I know 2.0 is in preview, but I’m sticking with 1.1 for this discussion) and Visual Studio 2017, it feel a lot harder than it should be.
