If you want to know what the book is about, here’s the product information sheet. I definitely hope that you will like it just like you did with the previous one (ASP.NET Core 3 and Angular 9), who happened to be a best-seller in multiple countries with more than 15000 copies sold throughout the world and even a video course on Udemy! That couldn’t be made possible without you, so thanks again and… get ready for another development journey!

Key Features

  • Updated with the latest features and additions in ASP.NET Core 5 and Angular 11
  • Design, build, and deploy a Single Page Application or Progressive Web App
  • Adopt a full stack approach to handle data management, Web APIs, application design, testing, SEO, security, and deployment

Book Description

Learning full-stack development calls for knowledge of both front-end and back-end web development. ASP.NET Core 5 and Angular, Fourth Edition will enhance your ability to create, debug, and deploy efficient web applications using ASP.NET Core and Angular. This revised edition includes coverage of the Angular routing module, expanded discussion on the Angular CLI, and detailed instructions for deploying apps on Azure, as well as both Windows and Linux.

Taking care to explain and challenge design choices made throughout the text, Valerio teaches you how to build a data model with Entity Framework Core, alongside utilizing the Entity Core Fluent API and EntityTypeConfiguration class. You’ll learn how to fetch and display data and handle user input with Angular reactive forms and front-end and back-end validators for maximum effect.

Later, you will perform advanced debugging and explore the unit testing features provided by xUnit.net (.NET 5) and Jasmine, as well as Karma for Angular. After adding authentication and authorization to your apps, you will explore progressive web applications (PWAs), learning about their technical requirements, testing, and converting SWAs to PWAs.

By the end of this book, you will understand how to tie together the front end and back end to build and deploy secure and robust web applications.

What you will learn

  • Implement a web API interface with ASP.NET Core and consume it with Angular using RxJS observables
  • Set up an SQL database server using a local instance or a cloud data store
  • Perform C# and TypeScript debugging using Visual Studio 2019
  • Create TDD and BDD unit tests using xUnit, Jasmine, and Karma
  • Perform DBMS structured logging using third-party providers such as SeriLog
  • Deploy web apps to Windows and Linux web servers, or Azure App Service, using IIS, Kestrel, and nginx
