Description

Are you still working on the same ASP.NET application from 2005?  Are you using the same controls, C# structures, and HTML in your application that you started with 10 years ago?  In this demo-filled session, Jeff Fritz will show you 10 steps that you can take right now with Visual Studio 2015 to make your application look and feel like it belongs in 2016.  We'll use modern JavaScript tools and techniques, as well as the latest version of the C# language to bring new life to our legacy application.

    Wow, I love this demo. I've been working and maintaining a dozen intranet ASP.NET Webforms C# applications for my company. We were able to deliver the intranet web apps from one to three months depend on the size of the projects. Thanks to the very well structures of the master page, ASP.NET controls, bootstrap, and entity framework.

    Some people in my organization suggested switching over to ASP.NET MVC in the past few years. However, after doing some research on the time investment and cost comparison, I decided to stay with ASP.NET Webforms, and I'm glad I made the right choice as the platform continue to serve me well.

    I'm going to take the new enhancements to Web Forms presented in this video and use in my existing and future project. 

    Big thanks to Jeffrey Fritz for your wonderful demo. Keep up the good work!

    I really hope Microsoft reconsider's their decision to abandon WebForms. For data-heavy business sites, nothing beats it in terms of developer productivity.

    It's really nice video and I think my decision to choose webforms was absolutely right. We have developed a large size portal for our company having more than 10 project in it which is working very nice and fast. This video really make me alive and happy again regarding webforms. I also welcome more videos from Microsoft like this. Thank u microsoft.
