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)

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
