Course outline

Module 1: Exploring ASP.NET Core

Microsoft ASP.NET Core web technologies can help you create and host dynamic, powerful, and extensible web applications. ASP.NET Core is an open source cross-platform framework built on .NET that allows you to build web applications. You can develop and run ASP.NET Core web applications on Windows, macOS, Linux, or any other platform that supports it. ASP.NET Core supports an agile and test-driven development cycle. It also allows you to use the latest HTML standards and front-end frameworks like Angular, React, and more.

Introducing Microsoft web technologies

  • Introduction to Razor Pages in ASP.NET Core
  • Introducing ASP.NET Core MVC

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Understand the variety of technologies available in the Microsoft web stack.
  • Describe the different programming models available to developers in ASP.NET.
  • Describe the role of ASP.NET Core in the web technology stack and how to use ASP.NET Core to create web applications.

Module 2: Designing ASP.NET Core Web Applications

Microsoft ASP.NET Core is a programming model that you can use to create powerful and complex web applications. However, all complex development projects, and large projects in particular, can be challenging and intricate to fully understand. Without a complete understanding of the purposes of a project, an effective solution to the client's problem cannot be developed. You need to know how to identify a set of business needs and then make technology decisions and plan the web application to meet those needs. The planning phase assures stakeholders that you understand their requirements and communicates the web application's functionality, its user interface, structure, and data storage to developers.


  • Development methodologies
  • Planning in the Project Design Phase
  • Choose between Razor Pages and MVC
  • Design of models, controllers and views.

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Plan the overall architecture of an ASP.NET Core MVC web application and consider aspects such as state management.
  • Plan the models, controllers, and views necessary to implement a given set of functional requirements.

Module 3: Using Razor Pages and Middleware

ASP.NET Core is a framework that allows us to create many types of applications. In this module, we will first look in more detail at ASP.NET Razor Pages, as a quick way to create a web application that does not require the complexity of the MVC model. We will then look at middleware, which has a particular meaning in the context of the ASP.NET Core request pipeline and potentially allows multiple separate requests to be handled in a completely different way and receive separate responses. You'll learn how to leverage the ASP.NET Core framework to handle requests and responses through existing and custom middleware, and how to configure services for use in middleware and other parts of the application, such as controllers. We will also look at the Services; classes that expose functionality that you can then use in different parts of the application. This is achieved without having to manually track scope at each individual location, or instantiate dependencies, by using Dependency Injection. Dependency injection is a technique used by ASP.NET Core that allows us to add dependencies to code without having to worry about instantiating objects, keeping them in memory, or passing necessary dependencies.


  • Using razor pages
  • Configure the middleware
  • Configure services

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Create a simple web application using Razor Pages.
  • Use existing middleware to configure an ASP.NET Core application.
  • Understand the basic principles behind dependency injection and how it is used in ASP.NET Core.

Module 4: Driver Development

ASP.NET Core MVC is a framework for creating web applications using the Model-View-Controller (MVC) architectural pattern. The Controller is essentially responsible for processing a web request by interacting with the model and then passing the results to the view. The model represents the business layer and can include data objects, application logic, and business rules. The View uses the data it receives from the controller to produce the HTML or other output that is sent back to the browser. In this module we will focus on the development of controllers, specialized classes that are essential for MVC applications. Understanding how controllers work is crucial to being able to create the appropriate model objects, manipulate them, and pass them to the appropriate views. Controllers have several methods called "actions." When an MVC application receives a request, it finds which controller and action should handle the request. You determine this using Uniform Resource Locator (URL) routing; Another very important concept needed to develop MVC applications. We'll also look at how to maximize code reuse in controllers by writing action filters.


  • Write controllers and actions
  • Configure routes
  • Write action filters

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Add a controller to a web application that responds to user actions specified in the project layout.
  • Add routes to the ASP.NET Core routing engine and ensure URLs are easy to use in an MVC web application.
  • Write code in action filters that run before or after a controller action.

Module 5: View Development

Views are one of the three main components of the Model-View-Controller (MVC) programming model. You can define the user interface for your web application by creating views; a combination of HTML markup and C# code that runs on a web server. To create a view, you need to know how to write HTML markup and C# code and use the various helper classes built into MVC. You also need to know how to create partial views and view components, which represent sections of HTML that can be reused in your web application. We'll also take a closer look at Razor's markup syntax for embedding .NET-based code into web pages.


  • Create views with Razor syntax
  • Using HTML Helps and Tag Helps
  • Reuse code in views

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Create an MVC view and add Razor markup to it to display data to users.
  • Use HTML helpers and tag helpers in a view.
  • Reuse Razor markup in multiple locations in an application.

Module 6: Model Development

Most web applications interact with several types of data or objects. An e-commerce application, for example, manages products, shopping carts, customers, and orders. A social networking app can help manage users, status updates, comments, photos, and videos. A blog is used to manage blog posts, comments, categories, and tags. When you write a Model-View-Controller (MVC) web application, you create an MVC model to model the data of your web application. Within this model, create a model class for each type of object. The model class describes the properties of each object type and can include business logic that matches business processes. Therefore, the model is a fundamental component in an MVC application. We will also look at validating user input.


  • Creating MVC models
  • Work with forms
  • Validate user input
After completing this module, students will be able to:
  • Add a model to an MVC application and write code in it to implement business logic.
  • Use data annotations for viewing and editing.
  • Validate user input with data annotations.

Module 7: Using Entity Framework Core in ASP.NET Core

Web applications often require a data store for dynamic information, for example, to create a web application that continually changes in response to user input, administrative actions, and publishing events. The data warehouse is usually a database, but other types of data warehouses are also used. In Model-View-Controller (MVC) applications, you can create a model that implements data access logic and business logic. Alternatively, you can separate business logic from data access logic by using a repository class that a controller can use to read or write to an underlying data store. When you write an ASP.NET application, you can use Entity Framework Core (EF Core) and Language Integrated Query (LINQ) technologies, which make data access code very fast to write and easy to understand. In this module, you will see how to create a database-driven website in ASP.NET Core using Entity Framework.


  • Introduction to the core of Entity Framework
  • Working with Entity Framework Core
  • Using Entity Framework Core Database Providers

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Connect an application to a database to access and store data.
  • Explain EF Core.
  • Work with Entity Framework Core.

Module 8: Using Layouts, CSS, and JavaScript in ASP.NET Core

When creating web applications, you must apply a consistent look and feel to your application. Typically you would include consistent header and footer sections and navigation controls across all views. Microsoft ASP.NET Core uses special templates called layouts to achieve this, along with Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to improve the appearance and usability of your web application. You can also create interactive HTML elements using JavaScript to provide client-side code in your web application, along with client-side JavaScript libraries.


  • Use layouts
  • Using CSS
  • Using JavaScript

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Apply a consistent layout to ASP.NET Core MVC applications.
  • Add JavaScript code to your web application.
  • Use CSS style sheets.

Module 9: Client Side Development

When building an application, it is important to know how to develop both client-side and server-side code for the application. In this module, you will learn client-side tools that will allow you to create complex web applications at any scale, including using the Bootstrap CSS framework to design your web application. You'll learn how to use Sass, a CSS preprocessor that adds code-like features, such as variables, nested rules, and functions, that improve the maintainability of complex CSS style sheets. You will learn responsive design principles that will allow you to adapt your web application based on the capabilities of the web browser or device using CSS media queries and how to use a responsive grid system. Next, you'll learn how to configure the Gulp task runner and use it to compile Sass files during compilation and perform bundling and minification of CSS and JavaScript files, and how to configure a watchdog task to automatically compile Sass files as you write. your code. Finally, we will introduce the Blazor framework for creating an interactive client-side web UI with .NET.


  • Responsive web design
  • Using front-end development tools
  • Looking at ASP.NET Core Blazor

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Use Bootstrap and SASS in a Microsoft ASP.NET Core application.
  • Use front-end development tools.
  • Ensure that a web application displays correctly on devices with different screen sizes.
  • Understand ASP.NET Core Blazor applications.

Module 10: Testing and Troubleshooting

The software development process inevitably results in coding errors or errors that result in exceptions, unexpected behavior, or incorrect results. To improve the quality of your web application and provide a good user experience, you must identify errors from any source and eliminate them. In traditional software development, testers perform most of the testing at the end of a development project. However, in recent years it has become widely accepted that testing throughout the project lifecycle improves code quality and greatly reduces the number of bugs in production software. You must understand how to run tests on individual components to ensure that they work as expected before assembling them into a complete web application. It is also important that you know how to handle exceptions when they occur and handle them correctly to provide appropriate feedback to the user, without leaking information about the structure of the application. Finally, by using application-wide logging, you can monitor user activities that could cause unexpected problems and troubleshoot production issues by tracking flows through the application.


  • Testing ASP.NET Core Applications
  • Implementing an exception handling strategy
  • ASP.NET Core Application Registration

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Run unit tests to verify the code and locate possible errors.
  • Create a Microsoft ASP.NET Core application that provides robust exception handling.
  • In the application registration for your solutions.

Module 11: Security Management

Web applications are typically delivered through a web browser, over the public Internet, to a large number of users. This means that security should always be a priority when creating these applications, because in addition to legitimate users, the application will be exposed to malicious third parties. Users can have anonymous access or can have a registered identity, and you must decide which users can perform which actions. Authentication is the act of establishing a user's identity, while authorization is the process in which an already authenticated user is granted access to specific actions or resources. By using authorization, you can prevent users from accessing sensitive material or information and resources intended for another user or from performing certain actions. The costs of security breaches can be very high, resulting in data loss, legal action, and reputational damage. Therefore, in the final section we will look at some specific malicious attacks, such as cross-site scripting and SQL injection, and how to defend against them.


  • Authentication in ASP.NET Core
  • Authorization in ASP.NET Core
  • Defend against common attacks

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Add basic authentication to your app.
  • Configure the Microsoft ASP.NET Core identity.
  • Add basic authorization to your application.
  • Understand how security exploits work and how to best defend against them.

Module 12: Performance and Communication

Modern web applications must be able to respond quickly to a large number of user requests in a short period of time. Caching allows you to store common requests, avoiding the need to perform the same logic repeatedly. This provides the user with a fast response time and reduces the system resources used to carry out the action logic. Using various forms of state management, you can build stateful applications over stateless web protocols, to provide responses tailored to the contexts of individual users within the same application. Finally, SignalR is an easy-to-use two-way communications API that is an abstraction of several different web communications protocols. This allows you to create server-side logic to send content to browser-based web applications in real time.


  • Implementing a caching strategy
  • managing state
  • Supporting two-way communication

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Implement caching in a Microsoft ASP.NET Core application.
  • Use state management technologies to improve customer experience by providing a consistent user experience.
  • Implement two-way communication using SignalR, allowing the server to notify the client when important events occur.

Module 13: Web API Implementation

Most web applications require integration with external systems. Representational State Transfer (REST) ​​services help reduce application overhead and limit the data that is transmitted between client and server systems using open standards. You need to know how to expose a web API that implements REST services in your ASP.NET application. You also need to know how to call a web API using both server-side and client-side code to consume external REST-style web APIs.


  • Introducing web APIs
  • Developing a web API
  • Call a web API

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Create services using the ASP.NET Core Web API.
  • Call a web API from server-side code.
  • Call a web API from client-side code.
