Learn ASP.NET Core MVC

Be ready next week using Visual Studio 2017

About the Book

You're a developer who knows nothing about ASP.NET Core MVC. Which is fine, except that you need to start coding your next application using ASP.NET Core 1.1 MVC and Visual Studio 2017.

Don't worry: I have you covered. I've been training hundreds of developers like you during 15 years, and converted my experience into this book. I know from experience teaching what takes more time to learn in ASP.NET Core MVC, and will spend time only where appropriate.

Plus this book is packed with exercises which build up into a full project: you develop a small e-commerce sample web site. You’ll allow users to browse for products, and you’ll also create a back-end where authenticated users will be able to list and edit products.

Read this book, and you can code your ASP.NET Core MVC application using Visual Studio 2017 within a week. Or your money back.

About the Author

Arnaud Weil
Arnaud Weil

Arnaud Weil is a born developer: when he was a kid he was controlling his electric train using an Atari ST and some self-made electronics, then as a teenager created and distributed worldwide one of the first Web browsers for some of the first pocket computers, when the Web was just beginning. In fact, he loves coding.

Turning a passion into a career, Arnaud has been coding all kinds of applications from factory tools to smartphone applications to house control solutions. His status as a freelancer allows him to help his clients with many different projects.

But what Arnaud enjoys most is helping other developers: that's why he teaches, speaks, and writes books.
