ASP.NET MVC 5 is Microsoft's last MVC release based on both the .NET Framework or .NET Core 1.0 for building scalable, standards-based web applications using well-established design patterns and the power of ASP.NET and the .NET Framework.  Version 5 of ASP.NET MVC adds many new features such as template-based views based on on the Bootstrap framework, attribute routing, support for Entity Framework 6, and more.

This 5-day course spends Day 1 covering advanced C# and .NET framework topics most commonly used with ASP.NET MVC 5 including delegates, lambdas, anonymous objects, dynamic objects, LINQ, and much more. The remaining four days introduce and educate students on all the necessary ASP.NET MVC 5 skills needed to design and build well-architected web applications.

Note that Days 5 wraps up with a chapter and lab that introduces .NET Core, ASP.NET Core 1.0, MVC Core 1.0, and much more.

During the course, attendees build a fully functional data-driven ASP.NET MVC web application through a series of hands-on lab exercises.
