ASP.NET has established itself as one of the most productive environments for building web applications and more developers are switching over every day. The 2.0 release of ASP.NET builds on the same componentry of 1.1, improving productivity of developers even further by providing standard implementations of common Web application features like membership, persistent user profile, and Web parts, among others. The 3.5 release adds several new controls including the flexible ListView and the LinqDataSource, as well as integrated suport for ASP.NET Ajax. This course will introduce practicing .NET developers to the comprehensive Web development platform that ASP.NET has become. We will cover fundamentals that have been in place since the 1.0 release, as well as all of the newer features found in the 2.0 and 3.5 releases with an emphasis on understanding how each new feature works and when to best apply it.

Do you know what happens before a page starts executing its events? Do you know how the ASP.NET pipline works and what are the best practices for your code to subscribe to this pipeline? Do you know the importance of ViewState in the page lifecycle beyond the "it saves page state between postbacks" statement? If the answer of any of the above questions is no, then you will benefit from this course.
In the world of HTML5, mobile devices, and modern development techniques HTTP has become the default option for building rich, scalable services. The ASP.NET Web API was designed from the ground up to meet the need of developers who want to build HTTP/RESTful services. The API provides a easy to use set of default options, but also provides a deep extensibility infrastructure to meet the demands of any scenario using HTTP.
A complete look into the bundling and minification framework available in the ASP.NET web optimization library. Learn how to efficiently optimize your website resources and assets without comprising the way you want to develop. ASP.NET makes bundling and minification incredibly easy and leaves no reason not to ensure your web application is fully optimized. Walk through basic optimization setup against a demo application in both Web Forms and MVC. Then, work to enhance the demo application by adapting the bundling framework for ignoring files, ordering files, and adding CDN scripts with a fallback. You will see how to begin extending the optimization library with your own custom transforms to harness great flexibility. We will take customizations a step further and consider using custom bundles to consolidate and inject resources, enumerations and templates to the client. Finally, we will dive into unit testing your optimization configurations and extensions and the importance of doing so in a team environment.
ASP.NET Web Services have been around for a long time, but this technology is still widely used today. If you have existing ASP.NET Web Services you are trying to support, you may have realized that it can be difficult to find good information about using them today. In this course you will learn the basics of ASP.NET Web Services and how to use them. We'll start off by talking about the technology and learning about how ASP.NET Web Services work. Then, we'll dive in and create our own simple ASP.NET Web Service and learn about how the technology works. Once we have a web service built, we'll learn how to use .NET's proxy generating utilities to create a consumer for our web service without writing much code. After that, we'll learn how to use ASP.NET Web Service in an existing ASP.NET application to provide AJAX functionality and even see how we can embed service methods in ASPX page. Finally, in the last module, I'll take you through the process of converting a legacy ASP.NET Web Service to newer technologies like WCF and Web API. So, if you need to maintain an existing legacy ASP.NET Web Service application or you are looking to learn enough about ASP.NET Web Service to feel confident in migrating to a newer technology, you'll want to check out this course.
Building Application with ASP.NET 4 WebForms is a course designed to get you up and running with ASP.NET WebForms. The modules in the course will cover everything from setting up a development environment to deploying to a live web site. In between we'll drill into the details of server controls, data binding and validation, user controls, security, Ajax features, and persisting data to SQL Server.
There's loads of advice out there recommending that you implement an Undo feature in your website instead of popping up warning messages to protect users from "dangerous" operations. But there's not a lot of advice out there for how to actually go about doing this in ASP.NET, in either WebForms or MVC. In this course, Keith Brown walks you through his implementation of undo at pluralsight.com to help you get a feel for how you might implement such a feature in your own website.
ASP.NET is full of little nuggets of security goodness, often doing their work in the background without you even noticing and other times secreted away within obscure corners of the framework. This course is about building familiarity with the breadth of framework features after which the developer can go off and build further knowledge through existing Pluralsight courses that really drill deep into the detail.
In this tutorial, we build a simple campaign management application using Dynamic Data and EF 4. We start by modeling our business domain using the Model-First approach, and see how to access data using familiar ASP.NET pages. Then we move on to exploring the Dynamic Data infrastructure and learn to customize it to our specific needs. Next we drill down into Dynamic Data controls and learn how to use them in custom web pages. We also learn how to add validation and business rules to our application. Finally we set out to improve our architecture by achieving better separation of concerns.
Developers are notoriously lax in security. Part of the problem is not understanding how our applications are attacked. To protect your applications you need to BE a hacker. You need to understand how your applications are hacked, and therefore, how to protect them. This course goes over the most common hacking techniques using an array of current attacks to show how a web application is exploited. This course covers exploits and protections for both Web Forms and MVC. Covered are such topics as sql injection, parameter tampering, information leakage, cross-site scripting (xss), cross-site request forgery, encryption, hashing, and denial of service all with applicable demos.
If you need to implement authentication and authorization in an ASP.NET application, this course is for you. Authentication mechanisms are explored in detail, including Windows, Forms, and federated authentication. This course also examines how to work with .NET 4.5's claims-based identity and authorization, as well as patterns such as single sign-on/out, federation and home realm discovery.
The iPhone’s rich user interface and platform features provide for the creation of applications that are compelling to both users and developers. Although commonly thought to be available only to native applications, the most common user interface and platform features are also available to iPhone and iPod Touch web applications. In this course you will learn how to apply your existing ASP.NET skills to create iPhone web applications that capitalize on the rich capabilities of the iPhone platform while maintaining all of the management and deployment benefits of the web. Topic coverage includes iPhone user interface techniques, GPS and location-aware capabilities, creating web applications that look and behave as native applications, offline application support, and the iPhone User Interface (iUI) open source framework.
In this course, we will examine the various techniques to add mobile friendly capabilities to your applications written with ASP.Net web forms. This course will show you how to configure the site and use adaptive and alternate rendering techniques to present your content in a manner that most mobile devices and tablets will be able to present and your customers will be able to use.
Web applications today are being hacked with alarming regularity by hacktivists, online criminals and nation states. Very frequently, it is the same prevalent security risks being exploited which is why the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) developed their list of Top 10 Most Critical Web Application Security Risks to help developers build more secure software. This course helps developers apply the Top 10 in ASP.NET using both web forms and MVC by walking through an overview of the risk, demonstrating how it can be exploited in .NET and then delving into the various approaches available to mitigate it by applying security in depth.
