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 make
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
- ASP.NET versus ASP.NET Core
- 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 important components
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 Views
- Passing Data to a View
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
standard to make things work. The important parts of jQuery are its selectors, allowing ajax calls in an easy way
and making event handling easier. Next to those three main parts, there are more things that jQuery can do, like
creating animations, adding elements, ... In these modules, we'll explore the most important features and compare
- Why jQuery?
- The jQuery wrapped set
- Detecting Page Readiness
- Selecting elements with CSS selectors
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 your guide
in the messy world of media queries.
- Normalizing and Resetting
- The Grid System
- Utility classes
ASP.NET Framework Pipeline
Before we can take a look at Controllers, Validation and Views in depth. You need to understand how a request turns into
a response. This small module will take you through the depths of the MVC framework and we'll follow a request from
the very beginning until the end.
- Clean Uri's with ASP Routing
- Controllers and Actions
- ActionResults and ViewEngines
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.
- Understanding the principle of the ASP.NET Core Pipeline
- Selecting your middleware in the Startup class
- Understanding the need for dependency injection and how to configure it
- Adding your first middleware for serving static files
- ASP.NET Core has its own routing middleware
- Showing proper diagnostics while developing, and not in production
ASP.NET MVC Routing
This URL means do that thing. Having full control over this is not difficult, but essential for any ASP.NET MVC developer.
- Formatting the request URL
- Convention-Based Routing
- Routing Attributes
- Using Areas for building large MVC sites
- Debugging URL routing
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 and Child Actions
- 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 maintainability and
separation of concerns, it also makes testing a lot easier. In this module you will use dependency injection to create
your first unit tests.
- Methods of Dependency Injection
- Dependency Inversion, Explicit Dependencies and Inversion of Control
- Unit Testing your components
- Stubbing, Mocking & Faking
Building and Consuming RESTful services with MVC Web API
If you are building a more client-centric application, it is important to send data back and forth between your client and
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 MVC Web API.
- Supporting multiple representations: XML and JSON
Client-side service consumption with jQuery
Once you've built your server with Web API, you can pull the data to the client-side by using jQuery Ajax.
- JSON serialization
- Getting data using jQuery AJAX
- Uploading and updating entities through REST: POST, PUT, DELETE
Authentication is about identifying who the user of the system is. In this chapter we look at the different authentication
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
