ASP.NET MVC 5 Development

(4 days)


Course Description

ASP.NET MVC 5 provides a full-featured web development framework that can be used to build robust web applications. In this 4-day, hands-on class you’ll learn about the latest version of the framework and the key features it provides.

Throughout the class, you’ll learn about core MVC concepts such as Model classes, Views, and Controllers. You’ll also see how routes are used and how they can be customized, write custom razor helpers and templates, and learn how to validate data using data annotations and the fluent API. Along with core MVC concepts, you’ll also learn how to query databases using Entity Framework. This includes creating custom DbContext classes, writing LINQ queries, building a repository layer to encapsulate data access code, and more. Finally, you’ll learn how client-side technologies such as jQuery and AngularJS can be used to interact with RESTful services created using ASP.NET Web API.
