View Course Description

Visual Studio 2013 is here, and like every release from Microsoft, it is chock full of great new features. This course gives web developers exactly what they need to know to get started, whether they're coming from older versions of Visual Studio or another IDE. To begin, author Michael Lehman shows you around the toolbars, menus, and components in Visual Studio, so you can invoke commands and navigate your code fast. He also tackles Microsoft's One ASP.NET strategy, a "web developer's buffet" designed to make web forms, MVC controllers, web APIs, and single-page applications all available to you in any type of project. Last, Michael covers how to debug locally, remotely, and on Windows Azure, and use one-click publishing and other web deployment methods to get your projects out the door quickly.

Topics include:
  • What's new in Visual Studio 2013?
  • Exploring the editor
  • Invoking the compiler
  • Using the debugger
  • Understanding One ASP.NET
  • Building web APIs
  • Debugging locally on IIS
  • Using One-Click Publish

And finally, we'll look at one click publishing, as well as other methods of web deployment for you web applications, when you've got site ready to rock.
