Getting Started with ASP.NET Core 1.0

By Shaun Walker on 4/7/2016

A few weeks ago I did a presentation at Spring Tech 2016, an IT Pro, Developer & Security Conference hosted by the .Net BC & VanTUG user groups in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada. My presentation was titled "Getting Started With ASP.NET Core 1.0" and it kicked off an entire day of content focused on the next generation web development platform from Microsoft. I only had one hour for my session and that provided barely enough time to scratch the surface of this powerful new technology. The good news however is that if you want to dive deeper, you can go ahead and download the current ASP.NET Core 1.0 distribution for yourself.
