Develop a simple, yet fully-functional modern web application using ASP.NET Core MVC, Entity Framework and Angular 5.Key Features Book Description Become fluent in both frontend and backend web development by combining the impressive capabilities of ASP.NET Core 2 and Angular 5 from project setup right through the deployment phase. Full-stack web development means being able to work on both the frontend and backend portions of an application. The frontend is the part that users will see or interact with, while the backend is the underlying engine, that handles the logical flow: server configuration, data storage and retrieval, database interactions, user authentication, and more. Use the ASP.NET Core MVC framework to implement the backend with API calls and server-side routing. Learn how to put the frontend together using top-notch Angular 5 features such as two-way binding, Observables, and Dependency Injection, build the Data Model with Entity Framework Core, style the frontend with CSS/LESS for a responsive and mobile-friendly UI, handle user input with Forms and Validators, explore different authentication techniques, including the support for third-party OAuth2 providers such as Facebook, and deploy the application using Windows Server, SQL Server, and the IIS/Kestrel reverse proxy. What you will learnUse ASP.NET Core to its full extent to create a versatile backend layer based on RESTful APIsConsume backend APIs with the brand new Angular 5 HttpClient and use RxJS Observers to feed the frontend UI asynchronouslyImplement an authentication and authorization layer using ASP.NET Identity to support user login with integrated and third-party OAuth 2 providersConfigure a web application in order to accept user-defined data and persist it into the database using server-side APIsSecure your application against threats and vulnerabilities in a time efficient wayConnect different aspects of the ASP. NET Core framework ecosystem and make them interact with each other for a Full-Stack web development experience Who this book is for This book is for seasoned ASP.NET developers who already know about ASP.NET Core and Angular in general, but want to know more about them and/or understand how to blend them together to craft a production-ready SPA.
