Course Overview

ASP.NET MVC 6 now unifies the creation of WEB Applications using a range of previously separate technologies; MVC and Web API.  ASP.NET MVC 6 within Visual Studio .NET 2015 now allows creation of modern web applications supporting a Responsive User Interface (multiple platforms).  Working on ASP.NET 5 allows more flexible hosting using a range of middleware.  MVC provides separation of concerns, making testing straightforward.  Theming allows rapid change of appearance.  ASP.NET MVC is a popular development framework for Web, Mobile and Server-side applications. Asynchronous programming is supported both from client side and server side.  Single Page Applications can be created using JavaScript libraries in conjunction with Web API.


At the end of this course you will be able to:


  • Understand when and why to use ASP.NET MVC 6?
  • ASP.NET support for hosting and use of ‘Middleware’
  • Use of packages (NuGet) and creation of packages
  • Use Separation to provide Model, View and Controller
  • Use MVC Routing including Attribute Routing
  • Develop for multiple platforms including mobile and tablet using ‘Bootstrap’
  • Apply testing / prototyping principals
  • Use ASP.NET MVC in the context of AJAX and jQuery
  • Understand security considerations
  • Use Web API to provide REST Based Services
  • Use Single Page Application concepts 
  • Use SignalR to create Web Applications with Real-time updates


Our MVC/WebAPI  course shows delegates Microsoft’s latest approach to creating responsive web applications, providing separation of concerns, allowing creation of layered applications and testing.  The view (presentation) can be developed using HTML 5, CSS, JavaScript and include many JavaScript libraries.

Web API provides support for REST based services which can be used in conjunction with web applications to improve performance of web applications.  The JBI approach is to first introduce the basics of the Model, View and Controller approach before moving on to the many features which allow enhancing of this architecture.  This course focuses on MVC 5, whilst another course focuses on MVC 6 with integrated Web API approach and its new features using Visual Studio 2015.

The labs lead the developer through the development of an MVC application progressively using features to enhance this application for performance and responsive user interface.  Labs to illustrate the ability to create single page applications will make use of Web API.

This course also takes a tour of the some of the new features introduced with MVC 6.
