Web development experience with .NET has never seen a drastic change like this since its birth day. Yes, I’m talking about ASP.NET vNext :) I have been putting my toes into this water for a while now and as of today, I am starting a new blog post series about ASP.NET vNext (with hopes that I will continue this time :)). To be more specific, I’m planning on writing about the things I am actually excited about this new cloud optimized (TM) runtime. Those things could be anything which will come from ASP.NET GitHub account: things I like about the development process, Visual Studio tooling experience for ASP.NET vNext, bowels of this new runtime, tiny little things about the frameworks like MVC, Identity, Entity Framework.

To kick things off, I would like to lay out the resources about ASP.NET vNext here. Enjoy them and start discovering what is coming up for the web development with .NET :)

Getting Started Material

Here and There ASP.NET vNext

Development Environment and Tooling Experience

Deployment

Deep Dive

MVC Specific

Badass Repositories

KRuntime: The core of the ASP.NET vNext. Compilation, bootstraping, package discovery and all other core stuff is handled here. Do not miss on this one!

kvm: K Runtime version manager which works on Windows and Unix based systems.

MVC: Written from scratch MVC framework on top of ASP.NET vNext. This new framework unifies the efforts on ASP.NET MVC and ASP.NET Web API. So, all is in one now.

HttpAbstractions: Contains HTTP abstractions for ASP.NET vNext such as HttpRequest, HttpResponse. Also contains IApplicationBuilder and types to create your application's hosting pipeline.

Home: ASP.NET vNext Home repository where you can get a head start on ASP.NET vNext really quickly. Its README file gives you a nice guide to get your machine up and running with the new tools. It also contains tiny samples which you can run and see how things are working in no time.

KestrelHttpServer: This repo contains a development web server for ASP.NET vNext based on libuv.

Configuration: Configuration is a framework for accessing Key/Value based configuration settings in an application.

Caching: Contains libraries for caching for ASP.NET vNext. Another sign that everything is now composable.

Options: Options is a framework for accessing and configuring POCO settings. Tiny thing that makes me happy that even this thing is thought of.

SignalR-Server: ASP.NET SignalR is a is a new library for ASP.NET developers that makes it incredibly simple to add real-time web functionality to your applications. This repository exposes ASP.NET SignalR on top of ASP.NET vNext.

Hosting: The Hosting repo contains code required to host an ASP.NET vNext application, it is the entry point used when self-hosting an application.

Videos

INTRODUCING: The Future of .NET on the Server: Very first video on ASP.NET vNext. Join the Lesser Scotts, Hunter and Hanselman, as they introduce you to new thinking around ASP.NET and the .NET Framework. What does ASP.NET look like in 2014 and beyond? In a world of NuGets and modular frameworks, of lightweight VMs, how could ASP.NET change and get faster, leaner, meaner, and more.

DEEP DIVE: The Future of .NET on the Server: Scott Hanselman joins developer David Fowler for this Part 2 Deep Dive into what’s coming in Microsoft ASP.NET. We explore what a decoupled stack looks like, how modules plug together, what this means for performance, and more. We explore the Project codenamed “Helios” and how this new way of writing ASP.NET applications uses OWIN and plugs into IIS giving you more power and choice than ever before.

Channel 9 Live: ASP.NET Developer Q&A with Scott Hunter & Scott Hanselman: The Scotts and David Fowler answer your questions live!

The Future of ASP.NET Part I: Scott Hanselman’s awesome intro talk on ASP.NET vNext at NDC Oslo 2014 conference.

Microsoft Turkey Summer School 2014 - ASP.NET Web API and SignalR Talk

In context of Microsoft Turkey Summer School 2014, I had a chance to give a talk on ASP.NET Web API and ASP.NET SignalR a few days ago at Microsoft Turkey Office. Here is the slides, recording video and references from the talk.

AspNet.Identity.RavenDB: Fully asynchronous, new and sweet ASP.NET Identity implementation for RavenDB

A while back, ASP.NET team has introduced ASP.NET Identity, a membership system for ASP.NET applications. Today, I'm introducing you its RavenDB implementation: AspNet.Identity.RavenDB.

A while back, ASP.NET team has introduced ASP.NET Identity, a membership system for ASP.NET applications. If you have Visual Studio 2013 installed on you box, you will see ASP.NET Identity Core and ASP.NET Identity Entity Framework libraries are pulled down when you create a new Web Application by configuring the authentication as "Individual User Accounts".

After creating your MVC project, you will see that you have an AccountController which a completely different code from the previous project templates as it uses ASP.NET Identity.

You can find tons of information about this new membership system from ASP.NET Identity section on official ASP.NET web site. Also, Pranav Rastogi (a.k.a @rustd) has a great introduction video on ASP.NET Identity which you shouldn't miss for sure.

One of the great features of ASP.NET Identity system is the fact that it is super extensible. The core layer and the implementation layer (which is Entity Framework by default) are decouple from each other. This means that you are not bound to Entity Framework and SQL Server for storage. You can implement ASP.NET Identity on your choice of storage system. This is exactly what I did and I created AspNet.Identity.RavenDB project which is fully asynchronous, new and sweet ASP.NET Identity implementation for RavenDB. You can install this library from NuGet:

PM> Install-Package AspNet.Identity.RavenDB

Getting started with AspNet.Identity.RavenDB is also really easy. Just create an ASP.NET MVC application from scratch by configuring the authentication as "Individual User Accounts". Then, install the AspNet.Identity.RavenDB package. As the default project is set to work with ASP.NET Identity Entity Framework implementation, you need to make a few more tweak here and there to make it work with RavenDB.

First, open the IdentityModels.cs file under the "Models" folder and delete the two classes you see there. Only class you need is the following ApplicationUser class:

public class ApplicationUser : RavenUser
{
}

As the second step, open up the AccountController.cs file under the "Controllers" folder and have delete the first constructor you see there. Only constructor you need is the following one:

public AccountController(UserManager<ApplicationUser> userManager)
{
    UserManager = userManager;
}

Now you should be able to build the project successfully and from that point on, you can uninstall the Microsoft.AspNet.Identity.EntityFramework package which you don't need anymore. Lastly, we need to provide an instance of UserManager<ApplicationUser> to our account controller. I'm going to use Autofac IoC container for that operation to inject the dependency into my project. However, you can choose any IoC container you like. After I install the Autofac.Mvc5 package, here how my Global class looks like inside Global.asax.cs file:

using AspNet.Identity.RavenDB.Stores;
using AspNetIndetityRavenDb.Models;
using Autofac;
using Autofac.Integration.Mvc;
using Microsoft.AspNet.Identity;
using Raven.Client;
using Raven.Client.Document;
using Raven.Client.Extensions;
using System.Reflection;
using System.Web.Mvc;
using System.Web.Optimization;
using System.Web.Routing;

namespace AspNetIndetityRavenDb
{
    public class MvcApplication : System.Web.HttpApplication
    {
        protected void Application_Start()
        {
            AreaRegistration.RegisterAllAreas();
            FilterConfig.RegisterGlobalFilters(GlobalFilters.Filters);
            RouteConfig.RegisterRoutes(RouteTable.Routes);
            BundleConfig.RegisterBundles(BundleTable.Bundles);

            const string RavenDefaultDatabase = "Users";
            ContainerBuilder builder = new ContainerBuilder();
            builder.Register(c =>
            {
                IDocumentStore store = new DocumentStore
                {
                    Url = "http://localhost:8080",
                    DefaultDatabase = RavenDefaultDatabase
                }.Initialize();

                store.DatabaseCommands.EnsureDatabaseExists(RavenDefaultDatabase);

                return store;

            }).As<IDocumentStore>().SingleInstance();

            builder.Register(c => c.Resolve<IDocumentStore>()
                .OpenAsyncSession()).As<IAsyncDocumentSession>().InstancePerHttpRequest();
            builder.Register(c => new RavenUserStore<ApplicationUser>(c.Resolve<IAsyncDocumentSession>(), false))
                .As<IUserStore<ApplicationUser>>().InstancePerHttpRequest();
            builder.RegisterType<UserManager<ApplicationUser>>().InstancePerHttpRequest();

            builder.RegisterControllers(Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly());

            DependencyResolver.SetResolver(new AutofacDependencyResolver(builder.Build()));
        }
    }
}

Before starting up my application, I expose my RavenDB engine through http://localhost:8080. and I'm all set to fly right now. The default project template allows me to register and log in the application and we can perform all those actions now.

The same sample application available inside the repository as well if you are interested in: AspNet.Identity.RavenDB.Sample.Mvc.

The current ASP.NET Identity system doesn't provide that many features which we require in real world applications such as account confirmation, password reset but it provides us a really great infrastructure and the UserManager<TUser> class saves us from writing bunch of code. I'm sure we will see all other implementations of ASP.NET Identity such as MongoDB, Windows Azure Table Storage, etc. from the community.
