With so much focus on front-end JavaScript frameworks, we can’t forget about the important role the server still plays in modern web development. With the advent of .NET Core 1.0 we have lean options for creating and deploying server side web applications and services. There are times however we still may desire a traditional full .NET Framework MVC solution. We’ll discuss the options of using .NET Core, ASP.NET Core, ASP.NET MVC, and Web API on the server to support a rich responsive web UI in the browser. Many of the server-side technologies are the same, but how and when you use them is different. There will be a look at the new ASP.NET Core web templates and how to manage in a world that is back to configuration over convention. In this session, you'll learn how to make the most of .NET Core, ASP.NET Core, ASP.NET, and Web API services to support the rich AngularJS client app in the browser covered in the next session.
