ASP.NET Core is an amazing web framework. It also just happens to be one of the world's top 10 fastest frameworks; clocking in at around 8X faster than Node.js. When a new technology comes on the horizon though, it is hard to resist the urge to want to migrate everything over. As always, there are many considerations. This session will take you through a migration Microsoft did with an open source chat application that used SignalR, Entity Framework, Web Api, and MVC. You'll get to look at areas that were trouble, the process, and how Microsoft refactored and enhanced the migrated application.

You will learn:

  • Understand when you should migrate
  • Determine potential pain points that you may experience in migrating
  • Learn from our issues and migration process
