This is the eBook of the printed book and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplements that may come packaged with the bound book.

Through four complete sprints, this book takes you through every step needed to build brand new cross-platform web apps with ASP.NET Core, and make them available on the Internet. You won't just master Microsoft's revolutionary open source ASP.NET Core technology: you'll learn how to integrate the immense power of MVC, Docker, Azure Web Apps, Visual Studio and Visual Studio Code, C#, JavaScript, TypeScript, and Entity Framework.

Working through the authors' carefully designed sprints, you'll start with a blank canvas, move through software architecture and design, adjusting to user feedback, recovering from mistakes, builds, testing, deployment, maintenance, refactoring, and more. Along the way, you'll learn techniques for delivering state-of-the-art software to users more rapidly and repeatably than ever before.

Master powerful new approaches to web architecture, design, and user experience
This book presents a pragmatic, problem-driven, user-focused approach to planning, designing, and building dynamic web solutions. You’ll learn how to gain maximum value from Domain-Driven Design (DDD), define optimal supporting architecture, and succeed with modern UX-first design approaches. The author guides you through choosing and implementing specific technologies and addresses key user-experience topics, including mobile-friendly and responsive design. You’ll learn how to gain more value from existing Microsoft technologies such as ASP.NET MVC and SignalR by using them alongside other technologies such as Bootstrap, AJAX, JSON, and JQuery. By using these techniques and understanding the new ASP.NET Core 1.0, you can quickly build advanced web solutions that solve today’s problems and deliver an outstanding user experience.

Microsoft MVP Dino Esposito shows you how to:
Plan websites and web apps to mirror real-world social and business processes Use DDD to dissect and master the complexity of business domains Use UX-Driven Design to reduce costs and give customers what they want Realistically compare server-side and client-side web paradigms Get started with the new ASP.NET Core 1.0 Simplify modern visual webpage construction with Bootstrap Master practical, efficient techniques for running ASP.NET MVC projects Consider new options for implementing persistence and working with data models Understand Responsive Web Design’s pros, cons, and tradeoffs Build truly mobile-friendly, mobile-optimized websites

This also goes for those who want to explore some modern JavaScript features, techniques, and architectures in order to develop cutting-edge web applications.

What You Will LearnGet a run through of the basic language constructs, Functions, and Closures of JavaScriptCode using the powerful object-oriented feature in JavaScriptMaster DOM manipulation, cross-browser strategies, and ES6Harness the power of patterns for tasks ranging from application building to code testingIdentify the best use cases for microservicesGain expertise in responsive and dynamic website designEnable real-time communications between client-client and client-server/server-clientWrite complete applications using functional reactive programmingIn Detail

JavaScript is a high-level, dynamic, untyped, lightweight, and interpreted programming language. Mastering modern JavaScript techniques and the toolchain are essential to develop web-scale applications. This Learning Path will upgrade your skills to ES2015, and you will get to introduce yourself to popular frameworks like React and Angular 2.

In the first module, you will get familiar with the language constructs and how to make code easy to organize. You will gain a concrete understanding of variable scoping, loops, and best practices on using types and data structures, as well as the coding style and recommended code organization patterns in JavaScript. By the end of the module, you will understand how reactive JavaScript is going to be the new paradigm.

Over the course of the next module, you will explore how design patterns can help you improve and organize your JavaScript code. You'll get to grips with creational, structural, and behavioral patterns and get a deeper look at patterns used in functional programming, as well as model view patterns and patterns to build web applications. By the end of the module, you'll be saved of a lot of trial and error and developmental headaches, and you will be on the road to becoming a JavaScript expert.
