Are you a front-end coder who wants to learn how to build data-driven, server-side web applications?
Maybe you know some Web Forms and want to make the jump to ASP.NET MVC?
This exciting new course focuses on the basics of this popular framework for building scalable, standards-based web applications using well-established design patterns, so you can ramp up quickly.
Free! Live! Learn ASP.NET MVC!
ChrChristopher Harrison and I had tons of fun doing a previous MVA event last September: Developing ASP.NET MVC 4 Web Applications Jump Start. That one's available online, and I'm told it's one of the most popular courses on Microsoft Virtual Academy.
We based the previous MVC Jump Start on the the official Microsoft Exam 70-486, which is part of the MCSD: Web Applications certification. We did what we could to make it approachable for beginners, but cramming an entire week long course in ASP.NET MVC into a single day meant it moved pretty quickly.
So Christopher and I both agreed that it's be great to have a more introductory level class that moves a little slower and is easier for beginners to follow. Here's what we'll be covering:
- Basics of MVC and the Moving Parts
- Creating and Configuring Models
- The Power of Visual Studio
- Deep Dive into Controllers
- Deep Dive into Views
- Introduction to Bootstrap
- Introduction to Authentication in MVC
- Supplement Your Knowledge
We'll be taking live questions, and there will be online chat support as well. If you've been wanting to learn ASP.NET MVC, this is a great opportunity!
And don't let your boss tell you that you can't miss a day of work for this. Remind them that this is free, and you'll be saving them tons of money with your new web dev super powers.
