Microsoft has been updating Team Foundation Services as frequently as it’s been updating Visual Studio, and, it’s updating Visual Studio Team Services (the online version) even more rapidly.  In this session, we’ll take a look several of the new and improved features including:

  • Agile Project Management (Scrum/Kanban) including dashboards and reporting
  • Code management and git
  • Team Builds
  • Release Management
  • …and whatever else we can squeeze in

0 – 60(ish) Building an application with ASP.NET Core

by Michael Stokesbary on July 16, 2016

1420 N Mullan, Spokane Valley, WA 99206

With Microsoft finally releasing .NET Core and ASP.NET Core (yes, we know, the tooling is still preview but the bits are real :)), let’s see what it takes to actually write a full application from scratch using this new technology stack. We have previously had talks that covered the basics of the framework and the tooling, but now let’s walk through an end to end application development experience. The goal for this talk is to cover:

  • dotnet cli
  • Middleware
  • ViewComponents
  • TagHelpers
  • Authentication/Authorization
  • Entity Framework Core
  • NPM/Gulp
  • Deployment (to both Azure and OpenShift)???

It’s a lot to cover, but I have faith we can get through it all.
