Overview of this book

Every full-stack ninja needs the tools to operate on front-end and back-end application development. This web app development book takes a hands-on, project-based approach to provide you with all the tools and techniques that web developers need to create, debug, and deploy efficient web applications using ASP.NET Core and Angular. The fifth edition has been updated to cover advanced topics such as Minimal APIs, Web APIs with GraphQL, real-time updates with SignalR, and new features in .NET 6 and Angular 13. You begin by building a data model with Entity Framework Core, alongside utilizing the Entity Core Fluent API and EntityTypeConfiguration class. You'll learn how to fetch and display data and handle user input with Angular reactive forms and front-end and back-end validators for maximum effect. Later, you will perform advanced debugging and explore the unit testing features provided by (.NET 6) and Jasmine, as well as Karma for Angular. After adding authentication and authorization to your apps, you will explore progressive web applications, learning about their technical requirements, testing processes, and how to convert a standard web application to a PWA. By the end of this web development book, you will understand how to tie together the front-end and back-end to build and deploy secure and robust web applications.

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
