What's up with the new ASP.NET Core? (Who Moved My Cheese?)

The latest release of Visual Studio is no minor upgrade from Visual Studio 2013. This is the culmination many changes, even to areas that have remained the same since the first days of Visual Studio .NET. This session will delve into the details of those changes as they relate to ASP.NET Core. This session will cover aspects like the solution structure, the addition of the wwwroot folder, unit test tool updates, config file changes, project schema changes to leverage JSON and much more. This session will jumpstart your ASP.NET Core development, and catapult you to immediate productivity instead of wallowing in the surprise of change.

You will learn:

  • About the new ASP.NET Core Project/Solution structure
  • About the proliferation of JSON in ASP.NET 5 projects and how to leverage that
  • The overall Visual Studio solution structure and where to put your own files within the new solution structure
  • About wwwroot, both its purpose and how to leverage it
