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 :)
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.
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.
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.
The Future of ASP.NET Part II: David Fowler and Damian Edwards Q&A session on ASP.NET vNext at NDC Oslo 2014 conference.
An Introduction to ASP.NET vNext: Awesome introduction talk by Daniel Roth at TechEd New Zealand 2014.
ASP.NET MVC 6 (now with integrated Web API!): Awesome introduction at dotnetConf 2014 by Daniel Roth on ASP.NET MVC 6 which is a new baby from head to toe. ASP.NET MVC and Web API are being combined into a single framework, ASP.NET MVC 6, for handling all of your Web UI and services. We'll learn how to use ASP.NET MVC and Web APIs in ASP.NET vNext to support connected applications for browsers, Windows Phone, Windows Store and more!
Entity Framework: Rowan Miller gives us an introduction talk at dotnetConf 2014 about Entity Framework 7 which is built on this new .NET Runtime optimized for server. Entity Framework is Microsoft's recommended data access technology for new applications in .NET. We'll explore how the current release of Entity Framework can be used to build applications. We'll also look at an early preview of EF7, a modern, lighter weight, and composable version of Entity Framework (EF) that can be used on a variety of platforms, including ASP.NET vNext, Windows Phone and Windows Store. This new version will also support targeting non-relational data stores.
ASP.NET vNext with Chris Ross: On Web Camps TV, this week Cory is joined by Chris Ross from the ASP.NET team to talk about the vNext bits of ASP.NET. The next version of ASP.NET ("ASP.NET vNext") has been redesigned from the ground up. The goal is to create a lean and composable .NET stack for building modern cloud-based apps.
ASP.NET vNext Community Standup: Meeting recordings from the weekly ASP.NET vNext Community Standup meetings, covering live community Q&A, product team discussion and the most recent updates.
ASP.NET vNext - Everything you need to know in 4 minutes!: Nice intro on new ASP.NET vNext in a short, 4 minutes video. This nicely wraps up what are the new things.
ASP.NET vNext Giriş (in Turkish): 30 minutes webcast on ASP.NET vNext by Tugberk Ugurlu in Turkish.
Dev: ASP vNext: Scott Hunter and Brady Gaster talk about ASP.NET vNext at TechEd Europe 2014
The Future of Microsoft .NET on the Server: Scott Hunter’s TechEd session on ASP.NET vNext at TechEd Europe 2014.
Reconciling ASP.NET vNext with Damian Edwards: Hanselman sits down with Damian Edwards and talks about ASP.NET vNext. There's been a lot of talk around ASP.NET vNext. How did development start, and what's been the thinking about how to manage a new world while still innovating on the current generation of technology? In what ways does ASP.NET vNext break from the past, and in what ways does it build on our existing power and experience?
Evolving ASP.NET Web Development with Scott Hunter: Carl and Richard chat with Scott Hunter about how Microsoft is working to evolve web development for ASP.NET developers. Scott talks about ASP.NET vNext as well.
Herding Code 198: Damian Edwards on ASP.NET vNext, Tag Helpers and SignalR: The guys talk to ASP.NET team member Damian Edwards about ASP.NET vNext (the next version of ASP.NET), Tag Helpers, and what’s new with SignalR.
MusicStore: Best sample out there for ASP.NET vNext by the team. It has two projects: one is for static-rendered Music Store application and the other one is a SPA (Single Page Application). Check out this article for further information about the sample.
MVC Samples: Lots of tiny MVC samples that ASP.NET team is using for functional tests.
Entropy: ASP.NET vNext feature experience playground of ASP.NET team.
MvcSample.Web: ASP.NET MVC 6 sample which highlights quite a lot of its features.
KLoggy: My playground for a few cool things such as ASP.NET vNext, Gulp, Bower, AngularJS. Check it out for sure. I have big plans for this :)
vNextLanguageSupport: A sample by David Fowler that has examples of how to support different languages in the vNext project system.
AspNetVNextSamples: My repository on ASP.NET vNext samples. It’s sort of tiny right now but I’m putting this here anyway hoping that it will get big in near future.
