Umbraco ASP.NET 5 Mastery

About the Book

Learn how to build a Umbraco powered website using Umbraco v9 and ASP.NET 5! The move to ASP.NET 5 has meant that a lot of things have changed in v9 compared to earlier versions of the CMS.

This book is currently in the process of being written. I would assume it will be 100% complete around June 2022 time If you have seen my website or YouTube and you would like to support me in some form, this is the project I need motivation with! This project is like a kick-starter project, the only difference is that you will get access to the book in real-time as it is being written. Expect a release each week. Unlike my last two books, I am releasing the book per section in completed form. The updates you get each week will be complete and will not change!

By buying an early copy you will get a discounted rate. After the book is finished the price will go up. Thank you for supporting me. It is appreciated!

I do have another Umbraco book but that is aimed at v8 and below. This book will also be updated to include ASP.NET 6 when it gets released.

Version: 0.9v
