Full Stack .NET Web Development

Video description

Microsoft published the .NET Core framework, which is a fully open source and cross-platform solution; ASP.NET Core started getting a lot of traction as well. This framework was built from the ground up and its architecture is all about the so-called middleware and request pipeline, which makes it both very powerful and easy to use.

In this course, we will start with the basics of ASP.NET Core framework and discuss how to extend the already existing architecture of the Core framework. Further, we will define the architecture of our application, Cubo, which will be a simple key and value store. In order to create a RESTful HTTP API, we will need two projects—the Web API itself and the Core containing domain models and business logic—in order to properly define the responsibilities within our solution. We will start with coding the Core of our solution by talking about repositories, application services, and Data Transfer Objects (DTOs). We will eventually implement the RESTful HTTP API and make use of our Core project along with some design patterns such as Dependency Injection (DI) to abstract away the business logic from the controllers. Finally, you will find out how to perform HTTP requests by using tools such as cURL and Postman. In further sections, we will focus on the use of Server and Entity Framework. Unit and integration (end-to-end) tests will be implemented in order to ensure that our application works properly and that new changes do not break already existing functionalities. We will then create views using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to interact with the API. Moving on, we will focus on executing asynchronous requests to the server and handling the responses.

What You Will Learn

  • Delve into ASP.NET Core framework and HTTP API RESTful implementation
  • Use controllers and endpoints to define routes
  • Explore good patterns and practices, for example, Domain Driven Design (DDD), Dependency
  • Study Dependency Injection (DI) or Data Transfer Objects (DTOs)
  • Create a web UI using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript
  • Store data in SQL Server using Entity Framework ORM
  • Use tools such as cURL or Postman to perform HTTP requests
  • Master unit and integration testing (end-to-end) of the HTTP API


If you are an ASP.NET developer and want to learn about ASP.NET Core or a programmer who would like to become a full-stack developer, then this course is for you.
