Create Modern Applications with ASP.NET Web API and SignalR

Remember the early days of ASP.NET development where selecting an item from a drop-down list caused a full post back of your page and caused a full database retrieval and a complete page reload? Those were the days! But application development (and web development in particular) has come a long way since those days. The applications that customers demand need to be lightweight, fast and dynamic. ASP.NET has evolved over the years, too, in order to provide the developer with the tools and frameworks to build these modern applications that can plug into the JavaScript client-side framework "flavor of the week" - Ember, Angular, Durandal, etc.

This talk will focus on the latest offerings in ASP.NET to help you build those types of modern applications -- MVC, Web API and SignalR. If time allows, we'll look at what's coming with ASP.NET 5 to help you stay ahead of the curve. This session will provide you with an overview of a number of tools and frameworks in ASP.NET and how to choose which tool or tools to use when.
