My ASP.NET Core and Angular 2 book is finally out! The publisher did an awesome job, as it's already available through a number of major online e-book market stores such as Amazon.com, Amazon.it, iTunes, Kobo as well as on the Packt website.
The whole experience was a blast, since I got the chance to work side by side with a number of IT professionals who helped me reviewing and finalizing this 470-page monster, debugging more than 5.000 lines of source code samples (everything is also available on GitHub) and publishing the sample SPA on the www.opengamelist.com website.
In the following day I will release here some significative highlights/content snippets of the book contents, to give the readers the chance to evaluate the product before spending their money to get it. For the time being, here's a quick overview of what the book is about: I hope it will help many ASP.NET developers to make the shift from ASP.NET 4 to ASP.NET Core and also from AngularJS to the brand-new Angular 2 framework. Happy reading!

Writing code is about striking a balance between maintainability and productivity—how quickly you can write it against how much more you have to write in the future. This is a guide to doing just that by combining the impressive capabilities of ASP.NET Core and Angular 2. It shows you how to successfully manage an API and use it to support and power a dynamic single-page application.
We'll show you how to construct your data model and manage routing and redirects before wrapping it up and styling it, all with the help of ASP.NET and Angular 2. You'll also learn how to optimize your application for SEO, check and secure any vulnerabilities, implement a viable authentication mechanism and, last but not least, use the proper tools and strategies for successful deployment. From readable URIs to OData retrieval and authentication patterns, we'll make sure you have all the technical knowledge you need and, more importantly, bring it all together so you can focus on what's important: a high-quality application that performs for users.
