The course starts with a review of the traditional ASP.Net MVC framework and explains its architecture by first creating simple MVC applications and contrasting them to standard web forms applications. The key improvements in MVC Core such as the ability to self host, side by side versioning, single aligned stack for WebApi and MVC, and simplified web development are clarified through simple examples. Then, Proper design of MVC Core applications with model binding, and Entity framework based data tier are covered. The second part of the course introduces the Razor pages architecture and explains its design by contrasting it with the MVC architecture.
