You will start by building a data access layer using Entity Framework Core, a RESTful service using ASP.NET Core, and then you will build a web application following the MVC pattern, also using ASP.NET Core. The resulting application is an example e-commerce site using the most appropriate capabilities in .NET Core for building a line of business applications.
What You Will Learn
- Ramp up quickly on Entity Framework Core and ASP.NET Core
- Know how to build UIs with ASP.NET Core MVC, Angular, and React to make better decisions on which technologies to adopt in your projects
- Conduct an apples-to-apples comparison of ASP.NET Core, Angular, and React

He is an avid guitar player, fly fisherman, home brewer, and gamer (including everything from retro arcade games, to board games, to role playing games). When not spending time on any of those hobbies, he waits patiently for a second season of Firefly.
