ASP.NET on Mac OS X and Linux
Currently, the only way to develop and run ASP.NET websites on a Mac or Linux computer is to install and use an open source version of the .NET Framework known as Mono. All of that changes this year, when Microsoft releases a new version of ASP.NET, ASP.NET Core 1.0.
If you want to learn how to use Mono on a Mac or Linux computer, here are some resources that will help get you started:
- About Mono
- Installing Mono on Mac OS X
- Installing Mono on Linux
- Running ASP.NET Applications Using Mono
For more information about ASP.NET Core 1.0, see these resources:
If you're like most developers that I know you've used the popular website
Stack Overflow is used by millions of developers every month
to get answers to a wide variety of technology related questions.
These days If you're not using Google for
searching the web, you're likely using Microsoft's Bing.
Or maybe you're a gamer and you visited the xbox.com website for
information on all of the latest Xbox games.
What do all these websites have in common?
They all offer interesting, compelling features to their users,
while handling large volumes of web traffic.
And they all use ASP.NET MVC.
Hi, my name is James and I'm a developer.
In this course, you'll learn the basics of ASP.NET MVC,
an open source web framework from Microsoft.
By the end of this course you'll learn how to create a project,
work with controllers and views, model data and more.
As we learn about ASP.NET MVC we'll create a comic book gallery website.
Our completed website will have a page for viewing a list of comic books, and
a page for viewing the details for a specific comic book.
I'm going to assume that you know the basics of working with C#, HTML and CSS.
If you're unfamiliar with any of those topics, or
maybe you need a refresher, be sure to check the teacher's notes for
links to other Treehouse courses that cover those items.
Throughout this course, we'll be using Visual Studio,
a powerful development tool from Microsoft.
Visual Studio gives us a great set of tools for developing ASP.NET MVC websites.
There's even a free version available, Visual Studio Community,
making it easy and affordable to get up and running.
You'll need a Windows computer to run Visual Studio.
If you only have access to a Mac or Linux computer, check out the teacher's
notes for resources on how to get started on those platforms.
When comparing ASP.NET MVC to other web technologies like HTML or
That's completely understandable.
There's a lot to know, but don't worry, we'll work through it step by step,
incrementally building up your knowledge and skills, you've got this.
One last thing, saying ASP.NET MVC, well that can be a mouthful.
Given that it's very common for developers to just refer to it as MVC.
I'll do us both a favor and use the shorter name going forward.
All right, that's enough introduction.
In the next video we'll answer the question what is ASP.NET MVC?
