Session : ASP.NET Core 1.0 : What’s New with Web API at Sri Lanka .NET Forum

Yesterday delivered a session at Sri Lanka .NET Forum monthly meetup. The session was titled as "ASP.NET Core 1.0 : What’s New with Web API". It was a house full session with attendees over 70.

Some of the attendees were new to ASP.NET Core and had to give them a brief on .NET Core and what ASP.NET Core really is. I didn’t have any slides, the total one hour session was filled with demos and of course there were a lot of questions during the session and after. As a summary following is what I have discussed and demoed.
  • ASP.NET Core Overview
  • ASP.NET Full Framework vs ASP.NET Core
  • ASP.NET Core Startup Class
  • Routing (Attribute and Centralized)
  • Formatting
  • Swagger
You can find the sample code used in the demo in GitHub.

    1. Hi,

      You can have a web.config or app.config file in the project and refer that through the code. Please have a look at below article.
