ORIGINAL POST:

Having worked on my first book over the past year or so, I am pleased to announce ASP.NET Core Essentials, now available from Packt Publishing.

ASP.NET Core Essentials

ASP.NET Core is the latest collection of Microsoft’s web application development technologies. When you’re trying to reach a broad spectrum of users with a robust web application, ASP.NET Core is there to help you build that application. With the ability to cater to users on desktop, tablet, or smartphone platforms, you can put together a solution that works well anywhere.

This book is what you need to get started developing ASP.NET Core applications was quickly as possible; starting by introducing the software and how it can be used in today’s modern world of web applications and smartphone apps. Walking you through the benefits of a Web API to support both applications and mobile apps to give you a solid understanding of the tech to build upon as you see what ASP.NET Core can do for you.

The book wraps up with practical guidelines for the use of database technologies, unit tests, security best practices, and cloud deployments for the real world.

Enjoy!
