Mastering ASP.NET Core, EF Core and Angular (v7)

Are you building next-generation web apps? Do you want a framework that is faster than Node.js? Do you know the best practices while building RESTful APIs? Do you want scalability as well as performance? Did you know Angular and ASP.NET Core were both created with performance and scalability first vision? Did you know that both these teams value community feedback and have an active and vibrant community? Did you know Angular releases a new version twice a year, but that it’s extremely backward compatible? Everything you need to know about best practices from a beginner to an advanced level will be covered in this workshop (for UI, API and server side).

In this workshop, you'll have the unique opportunity to learn these core fundamentals from Chander Dhall and Stephen Fluin.

Chander is an ASP.NET Insider, Web API Advisor , a Google Developer Expert and an eight-time awarded Microsoft MVP. He will share his knowledge and experience of working with Fortune 500 Companies to scale their systems to more than a billion hits a day with examples in ASP.NET Core. He will also dig deep into Angular 7, ASP.NET Core and Entity Framework Core and other related frameworks like Angular CLI, etc.

We are excited to welcome Stephen Fluin to MVP Mix this year! You will get to learn Angular fundamentals directly from Stephen of the Google Angular Team. Stephen was a successful consultant before he joined Google and brings a rare combination expert development experience, passion for business, and all things Angular.

The workshop will have 10 GitHub repositories for you to download and keep. For every solution repo, you will receive an exercise repo. The exercise repo will have a ReadMe file that will explain the problem. The solution file will have the actual solution, but will also have detailed steps to solve the problem.
