Building an ASP.NET Core App

Recently I had a great opportunity to sit down with my good friend and expert web developer Shayne Boyer. We challenged Shayne to take ASP.NET Core out for a test drive and build it with an Angular 1 front end from scratch. Shayne did a great job walking through this and explaining the new parts of ASP.NET Core as we built it out. You can watch Shayne in action here.

Learning Visual Studio Code

Do you develop with Angular, JavaScript, TypeScript, Docker, Python, Gulp, or ASP.NET? Do you work on a Mac OSX, Linux, or Windows?

Knockout Intellisense in Visual Studio 2012

If you enjoy developing with Knockout.js, then you’ll be glad to hear that support has been added for Knockout Intellisense in Visual Studio 2012! These features are pretty cool and will save me and other developers from senseless typos.
