Need to build a website with a high-performance, cross-platform-capable tool that’s always right for the job? Or maybe you’re a beginning Web Developer? Don’t miss “ASP.NET Core – Beginner,” the first course in a new series on ASP.NET Core, the free and open source web framework. Bring your knowledge of HTML, JavaScript, or CSS, but don’t worry about any .NET Core experience—we’ll teach you what you need to know to get started with fast, productive code for flexible apps.

The always-informative team of Scott Hanselman and Maria Naggaga explore the basics of ASP.NET Core, including where to get it, how to install it, how to use it, and more. Get details on ASP.NET Core SDK and tooling, and look at .NET Core CLI.

Your code will run everywhere, and it’s fast and easy to get started.
