Want to learn how to build ASP.NET Core 1.1 MVC Web Applications?
Prerequisites:

  • C# (Intermediate level)
  • HTML5/CSS3 (Basic knowledge)
This book is primarily aimed at developers who want to learn how to build ASP.NET Core 1.1 MVC Applications. You should be an intermediate level C# developer with some experience in HTML5 and CSS3. The book presupposes that you have a solid C# foundation since the language won't be explained in any detail.
You will learn ASP.NET Core 1.1 by building two MVC applications. The first application will be built using an empty template. The goal is to get you familiar with ASP.NET Core 1.1 by adding middleware and services one piece at a time, building a basic application. Then you will build a second MVC application using a template that already contains support for MVC, Entity Framework Core, and user authentication. This application is a video course website, where users can register to gain access to video courses.
If you are already familiar with MVC 5, the content in this book can get you started with ASP.NET Core 1.1 in a fast, no-fluff way.
It's important to mention that this book is practical and tactical, where you will learn as you progress through the modules and build real web applications in the process. To spare you countless pages of fluff (filler material), only valuable information, pertinent to the task at hand, is discussed. The benefit is a shorter and more condensed book, which will save you time and give you a more enjoyable experience.
The goal is to learn ASP.NET Core 1.1 by building two web applications, one from scratch and one from an existing template. This experience is something you can put in your CV when applying for a job or a consultant position, or when negotiating a higher salary.
Technologies, frameworks and languages you will use:
  • Visual Studio 2017
  • ASP.NET Core 1.1 MVC (The framework that you will use)
  • Services (To provide you own functionality as a reusable service)
  • Middleware (To provide you own functionality to HTTP Request pipeline)
  • Entity Framework (To crate and communicate with a database)
  • View Component (To render data in the _Layout view with model data)
  • Razor syntax (To include server-side code in views)
  • Bootstrap (Used for styling and to create a responsive design)
  • LINQ (To query the database)
  • Dependency Injection (To inject objects into constructors)
  • Tag Helper (to clean up the HTML and enable re-use)
  • HTML Helper methods (to clean up your HTML and enable re-use)
  • Bower/NuGet (To install necessary front-end/back-end libraries)
What you will implement:
  • Implement a web application from an empty template.
  • Implement a web application from an existing template.
  • Create a "real world" code-first database using Entity Framework Core.
  • Add and modify models, views and controllers to perform CRUD operations against the database.
  • Use client-side and server-side validation.
  • Secure the controllers, actions and view content with authorization and roles.
  • Styling HTML with CSS and Bootstrap.
  • Create a responsive website.
  • Register users with the site.
  • Manage users and their video courses.

Its scripting capabilities are robust and flexible, allowing you to simplify automation and integration across different Microsoft applications and components.

The book starts with an introduction to the new features in SQL Server 2014 and PowerShell v5 and the installation of SQL Server. You will learn about basic SQL Server administration tasks and then get to know about some security-related topics such as the authentication mode and assigning permissions. Moving on, you will explore different methods to back up and restore your databases and perform advanced administration tasks such as working with Policies, Filetables, and SQL audits. The next part of the book covers more advanced HADR tasks such as log shipping and data mirroring, and then shows you how to develop your server to work with BLOB, XML, and JSON.

Following on from that, you will learn about SQL Server's BI stack, which includes SSRS reports, the SSIS package, and the SSAS cmdlet and database. Snippets not specific to SQL Server will help you perform tasks quickly on SQL servers. Towards the end of the book, you will find some useful information, which includes a PowerShell tutorial for novice users, some commonly-used PowerShell and SQL Server syntax, and a few online resources. Finally, you will create your own SQL Server Sandbox VMs. All these concepts will help you to efficiently manage your administration tasks.
