Modern Web Development with ASP.NET Core 3 - Second Edition

By: Ricardo Peres

Overview of this book

ASP.NET has been the preferred choice of web developers for a long time. With ASP.NET Core 3, Microsoft has made internal changes to the framework along with introducing new additions that will change the way you approach web development. This second edition has been thoroughly updated to help you make the most of the latest features in the framework, right from gRPC and conventions to Blazor, which has a new chapter dedicated to it. You’ll begin with an overview of the essential topics, exploring the Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern, various platforms, dependencies, and frameworks. Next, you’ll learn how to set up and configure the MVC environment, before delving into advanced routing options. As you advance, you’ll get to grips with controllers and actions to process requests, and later understand how to create HTML inputs for models. Moving on, you'll discover the essential aspects of syntax and processes when working with Razor. You'll also get up to speed with client-side development and explore the testing, logging, scalability, and security aspects of ASP.NET Core. Finally, you'll learn how to deploy ASP.NET Core to several environments, such as Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS), and Docker. By the end of the book, you’ll be well versed in development in ASP.NET Core and will have a deep understanding of how to interact with the framework and work cross-platform.

Learning about the GDPR

The European Union (EU) adopted the GDPR in 2018. Although this is mostly for European countries, all sites that are available there should also comply with it. I won't go into the technical aspects of this regulation, but essentially, it ensures that users grant permission for others to access their personal data and are free to revoke this access, and therefore have them destroy this information at any time they like. This can impact applications in many ways, even forcing the adoption of specific requirements. At the very least, for all applications that use cookies for tracking personal information, they are forced to warn users and get their consent.
