ScottGu’s Blog – Introducing ASP.NET 5

ASP.NET 5 is an open source web framework for building modern web applications that can be developed and run on Windows, Linux and the Mac. It includes the MVC 6 framework, which now combines the features of MVC and Web API into a single web programming framework.  ASP.NET 5 will also be the basis for SignalR 3 – enabling you to add real time functionality to cloud connected applications. ASP.NET 5 is built on the .NET Core runtime, but it can also be run on the full .NET Framework for maximum compatibility.

Getting started with ASP.NET 5/ vNext and MVC 6

Today I came across with good white paper written by Telerik, it discusses about some of the burning questions we have about ASP.NET 5. For me, it answered lots of questions I had about ASP.NET 5. This is the link for white paper.

After I read this white paper, I thought to compile a list of resources to get insight about ASP.NET 5/vNext and other related technologies like MVC 6.

First of all I’ll share this course from Microsoft Virtual Academy about ASP.NET 5, this is a lengthy course about ASP.NET 5 but it definitely worth the time.

These are some of blog posts I found from various locations.

This is another set of blogs about ASP.NET 5 and MVC 6 by Stephen Walther, since world now move towards client-side MVC frameworks, I think this is good set of tutorials about how to use ASP.NET 5 with AngularJS.

I will update this post time to time with new resource I see. Hope this helps you. 🙂

ASP.NET MVC allows you to expose functionality through action methods. One can also expose the functionality as a Web API.
