MVC6 for ASP.NET Developers training course (code: MVC6)

Create Responsive Modern Web Applications With MVC 6 And Explore New Features Designed To Increase Developer Productivity



Our ASP.NET MVC training course will introduce you to Microsoft’s latest approach to creating web applications, providing separation of concerns, allowing creation of layered applications and testing.  The view (for presentation) can be developed using HTML 5, CSS, JavaScript and possibly include JavaScript libraries client side, whilst using Razor server side.  The JBI approach is to first introduce the basics of the Model, View and Controller approach before moving on the many features which allow enhancing of this architecture.  This course focuses on MVC 5, whilst another course focuses on MVC 6 and its new features using Visual Studio 2015.

The labs lead the developer through the development of an MVC application and progressively using features to enhance this application for performance and responsive user interface.

This course will also take a tour of the some of the new features which have been introduced with MVC 6.

Course Overview


ASP.NET MVC 6 now unifies the creation of WEB Applications using a range of previously separate technologies; MVC and Web API.  ASP.NET MVC 6 within Visual Studio .NET 2015 now allows creation of modern web applications supporting a Responsive User Interface (multiple platforms).  Working on ASP.NET 5 allows more flexible hosting using a range of middleware.  MVC provides separation of concerns, making testing straightforward.  Theming allows rapid change of appearance.  ASP.NET MVC is a popular development framework for Web, Mobile and Server-side applications. Asynchronous programming is supported both from client side and server side.  ASP.NET MVC 6 workshops will be in C# (VB.NET no longer supported)!
