The HTTP Protocol
You can't start developing for the web without knowing the fundamentals. This module talks about the HTTP
protocol used to
request resources from the server. We'll explore the details of what is used for a browser and for a server to
sure the communication is legitimate.
- Http Verbs
- Status Codes
ASP.NET MVC: Introduction
In this module You will learn about the MVC pattern and why this pattern fits so well in the world of websites.
- The Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern
- MVC in ASP.NET
- Client-centric versus Server-centric
The 3 Main ASP.NET MVC Components
Once you understand MVC, you need to learn how it is implemented in ASP.NET. This module explores the most
of the framework.
- Handling the user interaction with Controller
- Rendering the response with MVC views
- Creating a MVC Model and ViewModel
This module will teach you about ViewModels, which helps maintaining a clean seperation between the Model and
- Passing Data to a View
we'll try to
explain a couple of its quirks as well. This way, we can avoid surprises later.
- Primitives and Objects
- Functions and the Self-Invoking Function Pattern
- Strict Mode
- Error Handling
Responsive Web Design with Bootstrap
Your web site needs to look fabulous on any device; whether it's a laptop, tablet or phone. Let's bootstrap be
in the messy world of media queries.
- Normalizing and Resetting
- The Grid System
- Utility classes
ASP.NET Core Pipeline
ASP.NET Core easily outperforms all other web hosting solutions. So how did they do that?
Here we will look at the ASP.NET pipeline, and how to make it do your bidding.
- Middleware in ASP.NET Core
- Composing your own Pipeline
On the web the URL decides what the server will do. In ASP.NET Core you will find the End-point Routing Middleware.
A solid understanding of this middleware is required to build with ASP.NET Core.
- Getting Started with Routing Concepts
- Defining Routing Templates
- Route Parameter Contraints
- Route Parameter Transformers
- Understanding Route Matching
- Using Concentional vs. Attribute Routing.
- Routing Attributes
- Handling Routing Errors
ASP.NET MVC Controllers
In this module we'll take a closer look at the C in MVC. The controller has a very important role to fulfill:
It's the component
that figures out what to do when receiving a request.
- Model Binding
- Different Action Results
- Working with GET and POST
- Action Filters
In this module you'll explore Razor and its syntax. You'll see the basics as well as some advanced scenarios.
- Views and View Engines
- Layout and Sections
- HTML and Tag Helpers
Reusable Razor Building Blocks
Don't copy-paste Razor! Reuse Razor! That's what you'll see here.
- Partial Views
- View Components
- Display and Editor Templates
- Explicit versus Implicit Validation
- Validating data using Data Annotations
- Self-Validating Models
- Validating using the Model Binder
ASP.NET MVC Dependency Injection & Testing
Dependency Injection is the art of decoupling an object from its dependencies. Next to benefits like
separation of concerns, it also makes testing a lot easier. In this module you will use dependency injection to
your first unit tests.
- Methods of Dependency Injection
- Dependency Inversion, Explicit Dependencies and Inversion of Control
- Unit Testing your Components
- Stubbing, Mocking & Faking
Publishing Your Application
So you have finished a working version of your application. How do you deploy this? What are the options?
Since .NET is cross-platform, you can build everything on Windows, and then run on Linux.
We will also discuss various deployment options, such as assembly trimming.
- Deployment Options.
- Cross-platform Deployment.
- Self-Contained Deployment.
- Self-Contained Deployment Options
Building RESTful Services with Web API
If you are building a more client-centric application, it is important to send data back and forth between your
server. Web API uses REST to send data. It's based on the same principles as MVC.
- What is REST?
- Building a REST Web-API with ASP.NET Web API
- Supporting multiple representations: XML and JSON
Client-side service consumption with Vue JS
In this topic we'll have a closer look at Vue.
- The Evolution of Web Development
- Components Everywhere
- Vue Essentials
- Using the Fetch API to consume a REST Service
Authentication is about identifying who the user of the system is. In this chapter we look at the different
mechanisms and their application.
- Knock Knock... Who's There?
- Windows Integrated
- Username and Password
- Using External Authentication such as Google or Facebook
- Extending Authentication with your own Data
- Impersonation and Delegation
