By: Dirk Strauss, Jas Rademeyer

Overview of this book

.NET Core is a general purpose, modular, cross-platform, and open source implementation of .NET. With the latest release of .NET Core, many more APIs are expected to show up, which will make APIs consistent across .Net Framework, .NET Core, and Xamarin. This step-by-step guide will teach you the essential .NET Core and C# concepts with the help of real-world projects. The book starts with a brief introduction to the latest features of C# 7 and .NET Core 2.0 before moving on to explain how C# 7 can be implemented using the object-oriented paradigm. You'll learn to work with relational data using Entity Framework and see how to use ASP.NET Core practically. This book will show you how .NET Core allows the creations of cross-platform applications. You'll also learn about SignalR to add real-time functionality to your application. Then you will see how to use MongoDB and how to implement MongoDB into your applications. You'll learn about serverless computing and OAuth concepts, along with running ASP.NET Core applications with Docker Compose. This project-based guide uses practical applications to demonstrate these concepts. By the end of the book, you'll be proficient in developing applications using .NET Core 2.0.

Connecting your ASP.NET Core MVC application to MongoDB

When talking about using MongoDB in your application, one wonders how easy it will be to add this functionality to a new ASP.NET Core MVC application. The process is really easy. To start off, create a new ASP.NET Core Web application and name it BugTracker:

  1. On the New ASP.NET Core Web Application - BugTracker screen, make sure that you have selected ASP.NET Core 2.0from the drop-down list.
  2. Select Web Application (Model-View-Controller).
  3. Uncheck the Enable Docker Support option. Finally, click on the OKbutton.
  4. Your new ASP.NET Core MVC application will be created with the basics, as shown in the following screenshot:
  1. Enabling Docker support for your application can easily be done at creation time. You can also enable Docker support for existing applications.

I will take a look at Docker in a later chapter and how to make your application work with Docker. For now, our application does not need Docker support. Leave it unchecked and create...
