Introducing ASP.NET and Angular
Over the first two chapters of this book, we’ll build the basics of our ASP.NET and Angular journey by mixing theoretical coverage of their most relevant features with a practical approach. More specifically, in the first chapter, we’ll briefly review the recent history of ASP.NET/.NET Core and Angular frameworks, while in the second chapter, we’ll learn how to configure our local development environment so we can assemble, build, and test a sample web application boilerplate.
By the end of these chapters, you’ll have gained knowledge of the path taken by ASP.NET and Angular to improve web development in the last few years and learned how to properly set up an ASP.NET and Angular web application.
Here are the main topics that we are going to cover in this chapter:
- Two players, one goal. How ASP.NET and Angular can be used together to build a modern, feature-rich, and highly versatile web application
- The ASP.NET Core revolution. A brief history of ASP.NET’s most recent achievements
- What’s new in Angular. A recap of the Angular development journey, from its origins to the most recent days
