I keep getting questions about yet another ASP.NET Core course because the current version is different from the one that I created two years ago.
To be honest, I was planning to create a new ASP.NET Core course but after extensive research, I’m disappointed to see that ASP.NET Core has not picked up as much as I was hoping. Based on my findings, Node/Express and Python/Django are the top two stacks used these days for the back-ends.
I’ve already created several courses about the ASP.NET stack and despite the fact that these courses are a bit old now, the fundamentals I’ve covered remain valid and relevant. In these courses, I’ve taught you how to think like a software engineer and how to deliver working software with proper architecture and automated tests. I’m sorry but I’m not going to repeat all that stuff just because a few classes got renamed, or the configuration settings are now different, or Microsoft can’t make up their mind whether they prefer .xproj or .csproj for projects!
So, the bottom line is: ASP.NET Core is off the list in 2019. It may come back in the future depending on how things go. But I doubt it’ll ever get as popular as Node/Express and Python/Django. I could be wrong! We’ll have to wait and see.
So, what’s coming in 2019?
Before I give you the list, remember:
This is just a tentative plan. No promises!
I’m currently working on a complete course on SQL with MySQL. This course is ideal for anyone who wants to properly learn the SQL language whether they use MySQL or other database management systems. You’ll learn everything about designing, developing and maintaining databases. I’m planning to release it sometime in early April.
The other courses on my list (not in any particular order):
- Java (most likely the course after SQL)
Again, the list may get changed!
