What you’ll learn

  • Understand the major pieces of the Microsoft ASP.Net Framework
  • Have a public-facing website with authorization, authentication, and real-world value to enhance your resume/electronic portfolio
  • Understand how to use the code-first approach to generating a database using Entity Framework
  • Discuss the differences between Models, Views, and Controllers
  • Have the tools to setup and host a basic CRUD Web Application online
  • Have a basic understanding of working with Git, BitBucket, and AppHarbor

    This course is a very quick workshop to take you through the basic actions that will be required for you to create an awesome, real-world CRUD web application in just a few hours (you could do it over a weekend very easily) using ASP.Net MVC, the Entity Framework (code-first development approach), and the built-in scaffolding capabilities of ASP.Net MVC.  In the end, you’ll have your own public-facing website to enhance your resume and show off your skills in your own e-portfolio for job interviews and applications!  

    MVC = Model, View, Controller, and is a well-known and established design pattern.  Microsoft has made it extremely easy and convenient to create your web solutions using this pattern.  In Microsoft’s MVC framework, we find that convention is favored over configuration, so as long as we follow a few simple guidelines, the system will do a lot of the work for us. 

    We’ll also be taking a quick look at how we can use the Entity Framework to easily model and create a database for us.  By using the code-first approach, we’ll simply create our models and then look at writing a DBContext to store the models.  We’ll also look at some of the more critical operations, such as building relationships and seeding our data.

    After we’ve learned about the different aspects of our application, we’ll quickly create a couple of controllers and use ASP.Net MVC’s built-in view and scaffolding generators to easily build our CRUD operations against our database.   While working on controllers we’ll also look at Authentication, Authorization, and a couple of other quick security concerns.

Other things we will learn throughout the course involve the use of GIT for source control, pushing our repository to GitHub, and setting an upstream to AppHarbor so that we can get pseudo-continuous integration setup. You could also use BitBucket, GitLab, Azure Dev Ops, or another repository provider if you prefer that to GitHub.    Also, you could push to Azure, AWS, or another provider that hosts .Net Framework projects if you like, but AppHarbor is free of charge.

To close out the course, we’ll put DataTables.js on our Index view so that we can easily show the data, as well as provide built-in javascript tools that will filter and sort the data for us.  This will make your application “pop” when people look at it because it will be fast and easy to sort through the data and filter for results.

By the end of the course, you’ll be familiar with the major working parts of creating an Asp.Net MVC CRUD application and publishing to a public-facing website with a fairly nice and responsive UI.  You’ll have working knowledge of Models, Views, and Controllers, as well as how they interact to create a functional web application.  You’ll also be exposed to the Entity Framework and Code First Migrations with use of a SQL Server backend.  The best part is that although this sounds pretty daunting, it’s actually quite easy with a majority of the work done for us by convention and tools.

Who this course is for:

  • Anyone who wants to have a public-facing full-stack website that shows your skills for your resume/e-portfolio
  • Developers making the switch from .Net Web Forms to MVC
  • Web Developers switching from Java, Ruby, PHP, or another framework to .Net
  • New ASP.Net MVC Developers
  • New Web Developers

  1. Donny Phan

    Super practical. Lessons are catered towards anyone looking to find work in this industry. It felt very comprehensive and gave me a broad understanding of the programming spectrum

  2. Madhav raj Verma

    Thanks for your great effort. i am fully satisfied with this course the way you teach and your explanation are very clear ,The content you provide in your course no one can do this at this price.

    I really didn’t want to leave a low rating as Angela is a great teacher. The 1st half of this course was terrific. The 2nd half was terrible. Under the justification of “teaching students how to figure things out on their own”, pretty much all videos and all explanations were dropped. You were just told what to do, given links to documentation and told to figure it out on your own. I understand doing that to some degree, but to revert to that entirely for nearly half the content barely makes this a course. It’s just a list of things for you to learn, then you’re left on your own to learn them. The 2nd half was so bad, especially the data science component, that I didn’t bother finishing the course.

    Amazing 40 days course.
    Angela is a great teacher.
    The other 60 days are all about web developement, interacting with web pages, on your own with little to no explanations. I did not expect that at all. I wanted to learn more about software and scripting.
    This left me disappointed , confused and i started to doubt myself. Not a fun experience after the amount of effort i’v put in this course.

    Exercices format and explanations for the first 40 days were worth it tho.

  5. Ben K

    Not just an introduction to python, but really helps you learn fundamental aspects of python and coding in general. Some parts may require some knowledge on the subject (data science comes to mind) and there is quite some web development in the course. So, a few areas were not completely to my liking (I would have liked to see it done differently), but this course deserves the 5 stars in my opinion.

  6. Omid Alikhel

    I found the method a bit difficult when a code is written and then changed back to something different, with no enough explanation of how something happened and where it came from or a step by step explanation of why something is happening, i have no doubt in the instructors talent, but we are beginners!

  7. Devang Jain

    The course is not updated and most of the solution codes don’t work and there are no video solutions towards the end

  8. Szymon Kozak

    I think that the course tutor is really good in giving right information to learn at the right time. Thanks to this fact, my understanding of coding in python after 29 days of learning is above my expectations.

  9. Begoña Ruiz Diaz

    Ha sido la mejor elección que podría haber hecho.

  10. Vaibhav Sachdeva

    I want to thank Angela for making such an amazing course. It really helped me explore more things with python.
