ASP.NET Core: Building Sites and APIs


If you’re trying to get up to speed with the Microsoft web stack or are an existing web developer, this course will teach you something new about how to build websites quickly and with modern web browsers and devices in mind. My teaching style is purely pragmatic. No generated code, pre-packaged solutions or hidden code. I will teach you how to build a website by showing you every step, every trick and every tool.

In this hands-on course, I will show you how to build a website using the latest in Microsoft and open-source technologies. In this course, you will learn how to use ASP.NET Core, Razor Pages, Entity Framework Core, Minimal APIs and ASP.NET Identity.

In this 3-day course, I will show you how to develop websites made for the modern world of browsers.


Before taking this course students should have some familiarity with .NET and C#.  No ASP.NET or HTML experience is necessary. The course is a great way to get developers who typically create desktop applications ready to build web applications.
