Course Description


This course provides students with the skills needed to create sophisticated web applications using advanced features of ASP.NET MVC, the Entity Framework, Web API, and the popular JavaScript libraries jQuery, jQuery UI, Bootstrap and AngularJS. Students will build several ASP.NET MVC web applications using Visual Studio during the week to reinforce the skills they learn.

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.

The course includes coverage of Single-Page Applications. In these types of applications, the entire page is loaded in the browser after the initial request. All other interactions with the server utilize Ajax requests to update the page. The service layer is implemented with the Web API.

Additional topics include: using HTML helpers to design views; creating both inline and custom HTML helpers to encapsulate view markup; using convention-based and attribute routing to support custom routes; and use of the NuGet packages with MVC applications.
