I’m happy to announce that my Pluralsight course, Building Your First API with ASP.NET Core, has now been updated for ASP.NET Core 2.0.
It includes updated content regarding the IDE, framework changes & code changes related to building APIs with ASP.NET Core. Next to that, it also includes new content detailing (ASP).NET Core 2.0 features like the Microsoft.AspNetCore.All metapackage and the Runtime Store.
To top it off, the demos now come in 3 different flavours: one for use in Visual Studio 2015 with ASP.NET Core 1, one for use in Visual Studio 2017 with ASP.NET Core 1, and one for use in Visual Studio 2017 with ASP.NET Core 2.
Here’s a general overview of what you can expect:
Both ASP.NET Core and Entity Framework Core have been built from the ground up, and a lot has changed. ASP.NET Core isn’t an upgrade to ASP.NET, it’s a new framework altogether.
In this course, Building Your First API with ASP.NET Core, you’ll learn about the important concepts of ASP.NET Core related to building an API, like working with middleware, MVC, services, and Dependency Injection.
First, you’ll start out with the basics to ASP.NET Core including how such a project is structured. Next, you’ll explore how to implement all the functionality you’d expect from an API. Finally, you’ll discover how to create a database using a code-first approach and how to work with migrations. After this course, you’ll have a good understanding of what ASP.NET Core is and how to build an API with it.
