Surviving the Transition: Updating Your Skills and ASP.NET Applications

About the Bundle

Moving an application to a modern version of the framework can open many doors, but it doesn't do so without asking a ton of questions. And when you get there, will you bring the same look-and-feel and approach you took years ago?

Evolving Legacy Applications helps you assess your project, update the backend and remain relevent on today's platform.

Bootstrapping MVC helps you leverage the latest client-side frameworks and bring a strong visual refresh to your project.

Take the skills you have and the applications you've built in ASP.NET and breathe new life into both.

We took a great example of a legacy ASP.NET and we're tearing it to pieces, fixing and improving it as we go. It's our hope that the end product will be a more stable, easier to adapt piece of software that is healthier than the original.

So, you're a developer building an app, and you want it to look great?

Take the guesswork out of your design and leave the "making it look good" part to the many designers who use the Bootstrap front end framework. Exploit your skills as a .NET developer and your background in ASP.NET to explore ways you can leverage the MVC Framework with Bootstrap.

These pages walk you through a sample project with the explicit intent of using the MVC Framework in conjunction with the web's most popular CSS and JavaScript framework.

Dive into controllers, actions, views and partials to see how these elements of your application development arsenal fit in with Bootstrap styling. Break down action filters and base controller classes to weave them together with specific elements of the design library.
