Hi everyone, my name is Chris Jones and welcome to my course, Beyond ASP.NET MVC: Modern Web Development Demystified. I’m a Full-stack Web Developer with 15 years development experience.

Web Development has changed a lot over the last few years. [****] People aren’t just using ASP.NET any more; they’re talking about all sorts of tools like gulp, grunt, webpack, typescript, babel, node.js... the list goes on! It can be very confusing and hard to figure out what these things do and whether you need to learn them!

So in this course, we’re going to take you on a journey through recent front-end trends, and along the way you’ll learn what these tools are, why they exist, and we’ll be doing demos to give you a practical insight into how these tools work.

More specifically, we’ll be covering:

  • Package Managers
  • Transpilers
  • JavaScript Modules
  • Front-end Frameworks
  • Task Runners and Module Bundlers

By the end of the course, you’ll have a high-level understanding of what these tools are and how they can help you as a web developer. Along the way we’ll be suggesting other courses that you can take to learn about the technologies in more detail.

I hope you’ll join me on this journey with the Beyond ASP.NET MVC: Modern Web Development Demystified course, at Pluralsight.
