Main Presentation:

Digging into ASP.NET Core 1

Eric Trivette (Sparkhound)

The release of ASP.NET Core 1 is (somewhat) rapidly approaching, and with it a slew of major changes to the way ASP.NET applications are built. In this presentation, we will talk about the new structure of ASP.NET projects, covering aspects like project structure, the project.json file, the new request pipeline, dependency injection, and middleware. We will also cover the new features of ASP.NET Core 1 MVC like tag helpers, view components, and bundling changes.

Eric Trivette is a software developer at Sparkhound that has been developing software with the Microsoft stack since 2006. A graduate from LSU and Baton Rouge native, Eric got started in programming as a kid with a copy of Visual C++ 6 and has been hooked ever since. When not working, Eric can be found with an alcoholic beverage in his hand while participating in one of his many hobbies which include things like bowling, kickball, homebrewing, and others.
