Wrap Up2:49 with James Churchill
Let’s do a quick review of this section and discuss next steps.
You can see the completed project at http://comic-book-gallery.azurewebsites.net.
Finished Project Code
Here's how to get the code for the finished project:
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:treehouse-projects/aspnet-comic-book-gallery.git cd aspnet-comic-book-gallery
Taking the Website Further
If you’d like to continue working on the Comic Book Gallery website, here are step by step instructions for extending the website with the following features.
Additional Project Ideas
There’s no better way to solidify your newly aquired ASP.NET MVC skills than to practice! If you’re struggling to come up with an idea for a project, how about building a web version of the Fitness Frog application from the C# Basics course? Or how about a website that utilizes the bird data from the Querying with LINQ course?
Microsoft’s official ASP.NET website is a great resource for learning more about ASP.NET MVC.
Don’t forget about Treehouse’s Community! If you get stuck on something you can post a question or you can help someone else with an issue that they’re having (which is a great way to solidify your own knowledge).
Deploying Your Website
If you want to learn how to deploy your ASP.NET MVC website to the cloud, check out these resources.
To deploy your website to a hosting provider, check out your hosting provider's support pages for instructions specific to that provider.
Let's do a quick review of the section.
We added a Comic Books List View to our project so
that users can see the list of available comic books.
We saw how we can use a ViewStart file to remove duplicated code in our views.
We finally fixed our home page for a for error by updating our default route.
And we learned how to use the Html.ActionLink and
Url.Action Methods to create hyperlinks.
Nice job adding a new, useful feature to our website.
With the addition of our Comic Books List View, our website is now complete.
Thanks for hanging out with me as we worked on our comic book gallery website.
No project is ever truly done and this project is no exception.
A feature that would be great to add is to give the ability for
users to view a list of available comic book series.
And view the details for a specific series.
On the series detail view,
we can even display the comic books that belong to that series.
Or maybe we could add a Tweet button to the comic book detail view.
If you're interested in implementing any of these features,
see the teacher's notes for more information.
You've come a long way on your journey to become an ASP.NET developer.
But there's always something more to learn.
In future Treehouse courses, you'll learn how to create and validate MVC forms,
add user authentication to our website, work with databases and more.
Microsoft's official ASP.NET website also has a lot of great content for
learning more about MVC.
You can find the ASP.NET website at asp.net.
A great way to reinforce what you've learned in this course
is to follow up by working on a new project.
You can take our comic book gallery website, and modify it to display
movie posters, books, video games, really just about anything.
Whatever you choose, be sure to make it something that you're interested in.
It's always easier to stay motivated if you enjoy the subject matter.
I've left a few more ideas in the teacher's notes, if you're looking for
more projects to work on to practice these new skills.
Lastly, if you've created a website that you're particularly proud of,
I'd encourage you to share it with others on the Treehouse community.
Visual Studio makes it easy to publish your website, so
that others can see and enjoy your creation.
See the teacher's notes for links to resources.
Good luck with creating your next ASP.NET and VC website.
See you next time.
