4012 .NET Core Frameworks
Microsoft .NET is a programming technology that greatly simplifies
application development, both for traditional, proprietary applications and for
web-based applications and services. The original .NET was a complete restructuring
of Microsoft’s whole system infrastructure and represented a major learning
challenge for programmers developing applications on Microsoft platforms. Part
of .NET included a major new object-oriented programming language, C#. But
learning the new programming language is only part of the challenge. The much
greater challenge is learning the .NET Framework and its many capabilities.
A major new restructuring of the .NET platform, .NET Core is cross-platform,
open source, and modular designed for creating modern web applications and services,
libraries and console applications. It is available on Windows, Mac and Linux.
.NET now is a family of frameworks, including both the classical .NET available
on Windows and the new .NET Core package-based frameworks that are
This two-day course is designed to provide a sound introduction
to.NET Core for programmers who already know the C# language. It is current to Visual
Studio 2017 and .NET Core 2.0, which supports a much larger subset of the
classic .NET Framework than the original .NET Core 1.0. The course focuses on
core portions of the .NET Framework that are common across many application
areas. It starts with an introduction to the architecture and key concepts of
.NET. The course then discusses class libraries, packages, metapackages and
frameworks. The following chapters
discuss important topics in the .NET programming model, including delegates and
events, I/O and serialization, memory management, processes and threads. The
course concludes with a chapter on threading, which includes an introduction to
the Task Parallel Library (TPL).
The course is hands-on, with many programming examples. The goal is
to equip you with the foundations of this important new technology from
Microsoft. The student will receive a comprehensive set of materials, including
course notes and all the programming examples.
