When ASP.NET Core 2 shipped the early previews, I knew one large change was going to be the Identity subsystem. The Identity for ASP.NET Core 1 worked ok, but the setup was very confusing with identical configuration is more than one place.
I’m happy to say that in ASP.NET Core 2 it’s much better. Implementing JWT Tokens for APIs was more confusing than I liked back when I wrote my Implementing an API in ASP.NET Core course for Pluralsight. I was hoping that it changed to simplify the way it works.
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!
Doing a talk on a preview (ASP.NET Core 2.0) on top of another preview (VS 2017 Preview) is always risky, but it went well. Lots of great questions and hopefully I convinced some of the attendees to give it a try.
I’m working on an update for my ASP.NET Core course for version 2.0. One major change is to use Angular (v4 probably) in the new course.
My challenge was to get Angular and ASP.NET Core to work together. I like the idea about Angular-CLI doing all the boilerplate since setup is a bit of a headache. Should be an easy win-win. Well…
I am sure that many people like me are digging into ASP.NET Core 2.0 and curious about what has been changed. I’m going to start with the very start of your ASP.NET Core project, the program.cs.
Digging into the meat of ASP.NET Core 2.0 might lead you to identity, the better .NET Core support, and other changes. But I think the startup is where you can start to see the platform mature.
I know that some people learn better in-person than online, so starting next month I’ll be back to offering in-person courses. These includes some of the same topics as my popular Pluralsight course, as well as topics that are not covered there.
These in-person training courses can be customized for your company’s particular needs and skill level of students. Feel free to take a look at my company’s website for more details.
I had the pleasure of being asked to come to Stockholm to attend the DevSum 2017 conference. While my talk was the last of the day on the last day of the conference, I still was able to meet a bunch of great developers who stayed long enough to see my talk on Hololens.
As usual, the demo tanked, but I was able to save face by showing the after version of the demo. Unity can be a little headstrong and getting the settings to work with Hololens mis risky in front of an audience, but we got some good questions about how you’d use Hololens.
Writing web apps has become complicated. Transpilation has made some thing really awesome, but it also has complicated the field. Webpack, Browserify, Babel and even TypeScript have all make our lives easier and awful at the same time.
