A sneak peak at ASP.Net vNext

ASP.Net vNext is now available as a preview. I wanted to give everyone a heads up on what to expect in this next release. I recorded a quick video on what I consider to be the important things to be aware of.

  1. Project format is changing to a single JSON file
  2. ASP.NET MVC and Web API have been unified into a single programming model
  3. Project Roslyn allows for a “no-compile” developer experience while making updates
  4. Migration to a OWIN hosting model allows for flexibility in production web hosts (IIS or running on Linux via Mono)


More details and access to the latest previews can be found at these links:


Get some developer superpowers!

Earlier this year I started touring Australia giving free 1 day training on how to get started with Windows Azure Websites, ASP.Net MVC5, etc.  https://davidburela.wordpress.com/2014/06/14/community-report-windows-azure-web-camps/

I had a lot of attendees say that the content was great, and is there any way that their workmates could access the information? As I already had a lot of content prepared and I wanted to extend the reach of my training, I repurposed the content and helped create the Developer Superpowers series http://www.devsuperpowers.com/

Each month we will do a webinar teach developers about one specific topic.

In May I kicked it off with a webinar introducing Microsoft Azure Websites, ASP.Net MVC5, SQL Azure, etc. http://www.ssw.com.au/ssw/Events/Webinars/DevSuperpowers-ASP-NET-MVC.aspx

In June I did a webinar on how to unleash your application’s data with Web API http://www.ssw.com.au/ssw/Events/Webinars/DevSuperpowers-web-API.aspx 

In July I will do a presentation on enabling real time communications between the client & server. http://www.ssw.com.au/ssw/Events/Webinars/DevSuperpowers-signalr.aspx


We have a whole bunch of great technologies queued up for the upcoming months. Go take a look and sign up today! http://www.ssw.com.au/ssw/Events/Webinars/DevSuperpowers.aspx
