Overview of this book

ASP.NET Core 5 for Beginners is a comprehensive introduction for those who are new to the framework. This condensed guide takes a practical and engaging approach to cover everything that you need to know to start using ASP.NET Core for building cloud-ready, modern web applications. The book starts with a brief introduction to the ASP.NET Core framework and highlights the new features in its latest release, ASP.NET Core 5. It then covers the improvements in cross-platform support, the view engines that will help you to understand web development, and the new frontend technologies available with Blazor for building interactive web UIs. As you advance, you’ll learn the fundamentals of the different frameworks and capabilities that ship with ASP.NET Core. You'll also get to grips with securing web apps with identity implementation, unit testing, and the latest in containers and cloud-native to deploy them to AWS and Microsoft Azure. Throughout the book, you’ll find clear and concise code samples that illustrate each concept along with the strategies and techniques that will help to develop scalable and robust web apps.

Chapter 10 – Deploying to AWS and Azure

  1. Virtual networks (VNETs) make up an Infrastructure as a Service offering that allows you to define routing. This enables connections (between devices and networks) to be granted or denied. For example, a VNET might have a rule that allows only a specific IP address or port to receive requests from the internet.
  2. Defining health endpoints is a common practice, and is supported by most on-premises and cloud load balancers. Both AWS Elastic Beanstalk and Azure App Services support health endpoint monitoring.
  3. Both AWS and Azure have excellent tooling available in Visual Studio. We thought it was important to show how ASP.NET Core and Visual Studio are widely supported on more than just Azure.
  4. We intentionally left any judgement out about which cloud provider is better. Both cloud providers offer great support for hosting ASP.NET Core applications, ranging from small organizations to large enterprises.
