Prerequisite Knowledge

A basic understanding of the MVC framework, Java Script, and HTML/CSS.


This introduction to Asp.net vNext will be a presentation and quick tutorial to the Microsoft open source community. The presentation will introduce the audience to the brand new Asp.net, and its cross-platform story.

During this session the audience will be exposed to how to get Asp.net vNext up and running in Sublime and how to deploy it to the cloud. Targeted at beginners, the talk will be going over the frameworks, tools, and resources one would need to get started on any web project.

By the end of the presentation the audience will have an understanding of the new Asp.net vNext, and how to participate in this growing open source community.

ASP.Net 5 , the open source version of the .Net series, has opened up its framework to an entirely new web developer community. The cool thing about this lean framework is you can get ASP.NET from Mac to PC using either Visual Studio Code, Visual Studio Community or Sublime. In this demo, I will be going through the tools and frameworks you need to get ASP.NET5 running on OS X Yosemite and Windows.

Attendees are invited to either follow along or kick back, listen and learning something new. If you are intending to follow along please make sure you have Yeoman, Homebrew, Visual Studio Code and or Sublime installed a head of time. For more information on how to get started before my talk you can either fork my repo read by blog post Speaking at OSCON for instructions.
