Course introduction

The .NET Core development platform continues to grow in popularity across the globe, as businesses continue to discover and come to rely on the power and flexibility it provides. Consequently, there is a huge demand in today’s job market for .NET developers.

However, a common complaint among businesses is that they can’t find skilled developers. It’s not enough to simply understand how to write C# code. To be a skilled .NET developer and a valuable asset to any company, you need to know and understand the .NET Core development platform as a whole, and a huge part of that is .NET Core MVC.

.NET Core MVC is Microsoft’s implementation of the MVC (model-view-controller) design pattern within a development framework designed to simplify the development process while empowering developers with tools to create modern, robust web applications on any platform.

As you work through this course, you’ll begin to understand how, in .NET Core, MVC is much more than just a design pattern.

Are you ready to start building web applications with .NET Core MVC? Then join me in the first chapter, and let’s get started!
