I’m really excited to announce that my popular Pluralsight course on ASP.NET Core has been updated to RTM. It’s been a long slog to update and I apologize for the delay but it’s ready now.
The course is so different from the earlier builds, that we’ve decided to retire the older course and create a complete fresh course. Over 60% of the videos had to be updated and the entire set of example code had to be changed too.
When I was a kid, I had the dream of building an immersive ‘video’ game. I thought the magic was going to be holography. My idea was a holographic skiing game. Of course holographic tech didn’t mature like I hoped it would.
So now that VR is having it’s resurgence, it’s made me think back to those days of old. In this post, I’d like to talk about the different devices I’ve had.
Like other posts, I am going to list all the changes I found but there are likely more that I didn’t run into. Feel free to use the comment system to add more as you like!
This day has been a long time coming but I want to congratulate the team at Microsoft for delivering the first version of ASP.NET Core! I’m very excited to start working with the bits on real projects.
If you haven’t had a chance to look at play with ASP.NET Core, it’s time! For the ASP.NET MVC and Web API users, the transition is pretty quick, but if you’re coming from ASP.NET Web Forms or another technology, there is a learning curve.
The shirts come in S, M, L, XL and 2XL but limited quantities of each. Please sign up below if you want win a shirt. We will be mailing them out by the end of July. Please note that we can only mail them to the United States and Canada.
We’re home. It’s a fantastic feeling, but we had a great time. I wanted to take some time to thank all the great attendees, guests and helpers that made this a great trip. We got some great podcasts and hopefully encouraged a lot of people to try out ASP.NET Core!
We took a lot of pictures and you can see some of them by clicking on the mosaic to the right!
With the release of ASP.NET Core RC2, Microsoft hit a major milestone. But this change isn’t a trivial one. It’s a big change.
Since I’m updating my Pluralsight course on ASP.NET Core, I wanted to get a list of changes for the new version. I figured I’d share all the changes I could find converting a stock RC1 project to a RC2 one. It’s a big list, but hopefully manageable. Please share in comments and changes I missed so others can be helped!
I’m starting to play with the Preview of RC2 (nightly builds). It’s not time to do it for most people, but I’m trying to prepare for the update to my ASP.NET Core RC1 course on Pluralsight.
I have a couple of small library projects that I created when I build the new website. Since they are both pretty small and have xUnit testing, I thought it might be a good place to start.
If you’re not paying attention to Twitter, the ASP.NET Standup or the Github repositories, you might be missing a big change coming to ASP.NET Core. Now is time to add your opinion so that Microsoft can make the right move.
I suggest you read up on the change and make your voice heard if you have an opinion. My opinion is pretty clearly stated in the GitHub discussion so I won’t bother to repeat it here, but I’m asking you to get involved.
Before ASP.NET Core, our world was split between ASP.NET MVC and ASP.NET Web API. In ASP.NET Core that changes to a single model in ASP.NET MVC 6 for handling requests, whether they end up returning data or views.
There is a Web API Shim to bring over old controllers for use in ASP.NET Core. But for new projects (e.g. greenfield), I’d suggest writing your API controllers without the shim.
