.NET Core 2.2 - What’s New?

Are you ready for the next step change in the .NET world?

.NET Core is the next generation of ASP.NET.  A completely new web stack developed from the ground up. 
As .NET MVC 5 and Entity Framework 6 are no longer being worked on, this course covers the new MVC Core 2.2 and the new EF Core 2.2; plus the totally new Razor Pages (which appeared at Core 2.0).
Every .NET developer needs to learn these new technologies, how they work and what their strengths and weaknesses are.
Crucially, you’ll also learn why Microsoft have made these dramatic changes – it’s all about building .NET apps for Linux and iOS.

Purpose of this course

.NET Core turns the world of .NET on its head!  
This course will introduce you to all aspects of this new world so that you can decide if it is something your organisation might wish to move into.

Who is this course for

Anyone wishing to explore the world of .NET Core.
Ideally, you will already have experience of building web apps.

You will learn how to

See what’s changed between MVC 5 and MVC Core 2.2. 

This will include:

  • Tag Helpers.
  • The Interface Design Pattern.
  • Dependency Injection.
  • Async.
  • New .json Config Files.

You will also learn about:

  • The new kid on the block – Razor Pages, and why you might and might not want to use them.
  • What’s changed in Entity Framework between EF6 and EF Core 2.2.

It’s also critical that all web developers are keeping abreast of the huge changes in the JavaScript world. 
On this course, you will learn the basics of ES6+, babel, npm and webpack, and how to get Visual Studio to play nicely with these new technologies to automatically transpile, minify and bundle your code.
Finally, we’ll see how you can incorporate a little AJAX into both MVC Core 2.2 and Razor Pages.

Benefits for your organisation

.NET Core allows cross-platform development!  Want to use Windows, MAC and Linux? No problem, with .NET core you can!  
The flexibility this brings to an organisation and their development activities is immense.
