Duration: 35 hours
Prerequisites: Prior experience building ASP.NET MVC web sites and programming with VB.NET.
Students Will Learn:
- Generating Custom HTML Using Html Helpers and Partial Views
- Responsive MVC Applications Using Bootstrap
- Using jQuery with MVC
- Using jQuery UI Widgets with MVC
- Using Ajax to Build Interactive MVC Applications
- MVC and Routing
- Entity Framework Database First
- Entity Framework Code First Design
- Working with ASP.NET Web API
- Building Single Page Applications with ASP.NET MVC, Web API and AngularJS
- Working with NuGet
The course begins with an overview of ASP.NET MVC for experienced programmers and then covers the fundamentals of responsive website design. Students then learn how to use Bootstrap with MVC to make a web site responsive on devices from large desktop displays to small mobile devices.
Students will learn how to integrate jQuery into an MVC application to provide dynamic client-side behavior. They will then learn how to use jQuery's Ajax features to build more interactive MVC applications. Students will also learn how to use jQuery UI widgets to provide a more sophisticated user interface for their MVC views.
The course covers use of the Entity Framework to provide a data access layer for an MVC application. The Database First strategy is briefly examined before thorough coverage of the more configurable Code First strategy. Students will also learn how to use the Web API to build APIs that expose services and data via HTTP. These APIs can be used by a diverse set of clients including browsers, desktop applications and mobile devices.
