Join Jess Chadwick for an in-depth discussion in this video Development environment set up, part of Learn ASP.NET Core MVC: The Basics.
- [Instructor] Before we can begin developing our applications, we'll first need to set up our development environment. In order to develop my ASP.NET Core application, I'm going to use the Visual Studio IDE. Specifically, Visual Studio 2015. If you don't already have Visual Studio 2015 installed, you're going to want to do that first by heading over to visualstudio.com and downloading it there. Note that this page may have been modified since the recording of this course, so these buttons may be moved or changed.
If that's the case, just make sure that you download Visual Studio 2015 as opposed to Visual Studio online or the Visual Studio Code Edition. For this course, I'll be using Visual Studio 2015 Community Edition, but you'll be able to follow along with the Professional and Enterprise versions, as well. Next, you're going to want to install the ASP.NET Core Tooling. Depending on when you're watching this course, this tooling may already be included with your version of Visual Studio.
Regardless, just to be safe, head on over to ASP.NET/CORE and click on the get it now button. Then, follow the instructions to download the tooling for .Net Core. Note that even though the .Net Core framework itself has been fully released, as of the recording of this course, the latest version of the ASP.NET Core Tooling is not the final released version that you are likely to download. This shouldn't matter much since the steps that I show should still work fine for you.
However, you may have additional confirmation dialogue or steps in a wizard for example. If you run into any of these issues with the tooling, please don't hesitate to reach out to Lynda.com support for help.
