  • At least 3 months experience with ASP.NET MVC 5, Entity Framework 6 and Angular 2

ASP.NET Core is the next generation of ASP.NET MVC. It's a complete re-write of this framework but in a modular, cloud-optimized and cross-platform way. So it can run on Windows, Linux and Mac. If you're on Mac or Linux and want to build ASP.NET applications without running Windows in a virtual machine, you're going to love ASP.NET Core! You can use Visual Studio Code (VSCode) or your favorite code editor to build ASP.NET Core applications with C#. Say goodbye to VMWare, Parallels, and other virtualization software. 

Many companies have already started building their new applications with ASP.NET Core. And they're asking their new interviewees if they are familiar with .NET Core. So, whether you want to stay in the marketplace and get a better job with better pay, or you just love to work with the latest technology, it's time to learn about ASP.NET Core and Entity Framework Core. 

In this course, Mosh, author of several highly rated courses on Udemy, teaches you how to build a real-world application with ASP.NET Core, Entity Framework Core and Angular. If you're familiar with ASP.NET MVC 5 and Entity Framework 6 and are looking for a course to quickly get up to speed with .NET core, this is the course for you. Not only will you learn about the changes and the new tooling in ASP.NET Core, you'll also learn how to properly integrate it with Angular to build real-world single page applications (SPAs). 


The app you build in this course is for an imaginary vehicle dealer. The features in this app are carefully designed by Mosh to help you master the core skills you need to build real-world apps with ASP.NET Core and Angular. 

By the end of watching this course, you'll be able to:

  • Build APIs with ASP.NET Core
  • Test APIs with PostMan
  • Integrate Angular and ASP.NET Core 
  • Implement a clean and decoupled architecture 
  • Understand and apply the Dependency Inversion Principle (DIP)
  • Properly implement the repository and unit of work patterns 
  • Use the new dependency injection feature in ASP.NET Core 
  • Troubleshoot common runtime errors 
  • Store and retrieve data with Entity Framework Core (code-first workflow)
  • Use AutoMapper 
  • Implement CRUD operations (including one-to-many and many-to-many relationships)
  • Implement filtering, sorting and paging data
  • Handle and logging errors 
  • Display toast notifications 
  • Implement cascading drop-down lists
  • Implement photo upload with progress bars
  • Add authentication and authorization with Auth0 (including roles with different privileges)
  • Prevent CSRF attacks  
  • Display charts 
  • Display dialog Boxes 
  • And more...

On top of all these, you'll learn how to write quality code, not just how to build apps. There are a lot of developers out there who can build apps but they write poor quality code. Mosh shows you how to refactor bad code into clean, maintainable and quality code. He also shares his knowledge and 15 years of experience about software design and architecture. So this course is more than just technology. It teaches you how to think like a software engineer. 

These are the essential skills that you take with you to nearly every real-world project. Whether you want to get prepared for a job interview or simply want to take your coding skills to the next level, this course is the means to the destination. 


There are two ways to build ASP.NET Core applications. You can use Visual Studio 2017 or Visual Studio Code, a light-weight cross-platform code editor. In this course, Mosh uses VSCode and the command-line to build an app, but what you learn can be applied in Visual Studio 2017 as well. 


In order to take this course, you should have at least 3 months experience with ASP.NET MVC 5, Entity Framework 6 and Angular 2 (or higher)

If you need to strengthen your understanding of these frameworks, you can watch Mosh's related courses prior to or in parallel with this course: 

  • Angular 2 with TypeScript for Beginners
  • The Complete ASP.NET MVC 5 Course
  • Entity Framework 6 in Depth 


Depending on your level of experience, there are different ways to take this course. You can watch it, section by section, just like other courses. You may prefer to code along with the videos or watch a section first and then code. 

But if you like to get out of your comfort zone and take your coding skills to the next level, you should take advantage of the 60 day challenge program that comes with this course. 

Imagine you and Mosh are team mates and are working on a real-world project. Every week Mosh gives you a challenge or a task to complete. You have one week to complete this task. The following week he publishes a new section and shows you how he completes that task himself. This is a fantastic learning opportunity for you. You can compare your code with his and find areas for improvement. 

Initially only the first section is published. A new section is added to the course on a weekly basis. If you don't like the weekly gaps, you can wait until the course is complete. But you'll miss the opportunity to be part of this 60 day challenge program with other students at the exact same time. 


While you use ASP.NET Core and Entity Framework to build an app, the focus of this course is on application building skills and not a deep overview of ASP.NET Core and Entity Framework. Because in any real-world applications, you use only a subset of the features in any frameworks. So, it's impossible to cover everything about ASP.NET Core and Entity Framework in one app. But you'll learn about the key things that you need to know in order to get the job done. 

Also, the following topics are outside the scope of this course: 

  • Complex domains and domain-driven design (DDD)
  • Design patterns
  • Continuous integration and deployment
  • Automated testing

Finally, the application you'll build in this course has a very simple user interface since the focus of this course is on coding not building visually engaging user interfaces. 


So, do you want to transition from ASP.NET MVC 5 and learn about the latest stuff happening in .NET Core? Do you want to learn how to build a real-world application with ASP.NET Core and Angular? Then take this course and get started. 

Note that the price for this course goes up weekly as new sections are added and eventually it'll be somewhere between $150 to $200. By enrolling in the course now, you'll get all the future sections for free. So enrol now or you'll have to pay more in the future! 

This course comes with a 30-day money back guarantee. If you're not satisfied, you can contact Udemy for a full refund. No questions asked. 

Enrol in the course and start building this app in under 10 minutes!
