Latest Innovations for ASP.NET MVC Development
With the release of Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 and recent updates, we also got new releases of ASP.NET MVC with lots of great new features. The good news is, it won't fundamentally change anything about the way you build websites with MVC, but it is actually a pretty major release with some important changes to become familiar with in the MVC feature set and in the surrounding ASP.NET stack. This session provides a guided tour of those new features. First, get a good understanding of some changes that are foundational and change the way ASP.NET works under the covers—the OWIN/Katana layers of the processing pipeline. Learn how to leverage new features that improve the way you write your MVC pages and controllers, like Browser Link, One ASP.NET, attribute routing, scaffolding, editor and security features, and the inclusion of Bootstrap. You also get a brief look at some other ASP.NET features like SignalR that you can incorporate in your MVC applications. By the end of the session you should have a solid understanding of what is new in MVC 5 and a quick start on how to start using those features.
