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.

Getting ready for production

In this section, we’ll see how we can further refine our apps’ source code in order to get them ready for production usage. We’ll mostly deal with server-side and client-side caching, environment configuration, and so on. While we’re there, we’ll take the chance to learn some useful production optimization tips offered by our front-end and back-end frameworks.

More specifically, we’re going to cover the following:

  • Configuring the endpoints, where we’ll see how we will set up the production endpoints (hostnames, aliases, and IP addresses) and SSL certificates throughout the chapter
  • ASP.NET Core deployment tips, where we’ll learn how our back-end has been optimized for production usage
  • Angular deployment tips, where we’ll review some strategies used by the Visual Studio template to optimize the front-end production-building phase

Let’s get to work!
