Professional developers will produce leaner applications for the .NET Core platform using the guidance in this best-selling book on ASP.NET, now in its 8th edition and updated for ASP.NET Core 3. It contains detailed explanations of the new Core functionality. This cornerstone guide puts ASP.NET Core 3 into context and dives deep into the tools and techniques required to build modern, extensible web applications. New features and capabilities such as MVC 3, Blazor, Razor Pages, and gRPC are covered, along with demonstrations of how they are applied.
ASP.NET Core 3 is the latest evolution of Microsoft's ASP.NET web platform and provides a "host-agnostic" framework and a high-productivity programming model that promotes cleaner code architecture, test-driven development, and powerful extensibility.

As you gain knowledge and confidence, he introduces increasingly more complex topics and advanced features, including endpoint routing and dependency injection. He goes in depth to give you the knowledge you need.
