.NET 5 is the future.
It will combine the old .NET framework with .NET Core and that’s why it’s about time to update this course with the latest version of .NET.
You will learn the crucial stuff about web development with Web API and Entity Framework in .NET 5 in no time so that you’re able to join new projects and companies who are craving for .NET developers like you very soon.
With the example application, we’re going to build you will be able to create, read, update, and delete contacts. We will use people you might even know, like Peter Parker or Tony Stark.
The tools we’re going to use are the .NET SDK, of course, together with Visual Studio to write our code, Postman to make our REST calls and SQL Server Express for our database.
Everything is available for free! So you already have everything you need to start developing with .NET 5.
A few minutes into the course, you will already make your first Web API call.
After that you create your own model and controller to make use of the Model-View-Controller pattern and implement all CRUD operations, meaning create, read, update and delete with the corresponding HTTP methods GET, POST, PUT and DELETE.
Then you will make your data persistent with the help of the object-relational mapper Entity Framework and code-first migration.
With all that knowledge, you are ready to conquer any .NET 5 back end application.

Passionate Software Developer & Teacher
Writing code is what drives me. Creating software out of nothing is a skill I truly am passionate about and I want to share this astonishing feeling of making stuff with you.
I started to learn several programming languages as a teenager and always wanted to create software ever since I first played a game on a Commodore 64. During my bachelor and master studies, I joined various companies, made desktop and web applications as well as video games professionally and was always anxious to improve my craft, which I have been doing for more than 15 years now.​
For me, the most important part of writing and teaching code is to have fun. If certain ways work for you and the results are maintainable and you have fun with your results, you’re doing it the right way. I don’t care if you always use your keyboard or switch to the mouse from time to time, so-called best practices are not always best or practical, I want to teach you to develop software in a way it works in the industry, a way it works for you and in a way that makes you happy.
