About the Technology

ASP.NET Core is a highly flexible, high performance cross platform web framework that’s entirely free and open source. ASP.NET Core developers enjoy choice without compromise, benefiting from both a mature, well-supported stack and the freedom to develop and deploy from and onto any cloud or on-prem platform. Now in version 3.1, the latest version of ASP.NET Core includes powerful new additions for building server-side apps and background services.

About the book

Along the way, you’ll mix in important process steps like testing, multiplatform deployment, and security.
