Eric Vogel kicks off his series on ASP.NET Core security by showing how to set up authentication to register, log in and log out a user account in an ASP.NET Core MVC application.
After this week's release of Visual Studio 2019, Microsoft exec Scott Hunter detailed many of the new features coming in .NET Core 3, already available as a preview in VS 2019 so developers can try it out (with a simple tweak).
Blazor, like most systems for generating Web pages, supports using layout pages for repeated content. Here's what works, what doesn't (yet) work and work-arounds I've discovered for what doesn't work.
The reality is that you will need to have, at least, two different configurations: one for production and one for development. Here's how to automate those conversions.
If you move beyond the basics of working with Razor Pages, there are at least two things you should know to support creating Pages that do more than one thing and integrate with existing code.
If you're moving your application's client-side code to Blazor, then you'll want Blazor to manage navigating between pages, too.
There are lots of ways to handle databases in a containerized environment like Docker. Here's how to create SQL Server in a container, how to load it with the data you want and how to integrate that container into whatever project needs it. Be warned: Some PowerShell is used.
Here's how to run a "real-world" application (consisting of an MVC application and a Web Service) in a networked set of Docker containers. And it's just a couple of mouse clicks in Visual Studio to implement it.
If you want to handle the most common pattern in ASP.NET Controllers (displaying a page and then accepting data entered into it), you can do it with Razor Pages. You'll just need less code than if you used a Controller, a View and a model object.
As fond as he is of using Controllers and Views, Peter isn't sure that Razor Pages aren't a better model for Web development. But the first step, adding Razor Pages to your project, isn't as easy as it should be. And, after that, you'll want to integrate them with your existing MVC application.
In ASP.NET Core, your web.config file with its <appsettings> section is gone. The replacement is a more extensive and configurable system that you can leverage to simplify configuring your objects.
Amazon Web Services has updated its serverless functionality for ASP.NET Core projects, the popular new direction for Microsoft Web programming.
ASP.NET Core's support for sharing objects defined at startup is great ... but what if you need to set options on those objects? Here's a case study that starts off great and then descends into over-engineered madness (but only if you want to go that far).
ASP.NET Core makes building RESTful services easy and comfortable, says Joydip Kanjilal, who shows how to do just that in this article, complete with code samples and screenshots.

Eric Vogel uses code samples and screenshots to demonstrate how to create and use the views and controller for an ASP.NET MVC Core CRUD application.
Here's everything you need to write code for the Session object in ASP.NET Core -- including why you can't expect to migrate your existing ASP.NET MVC application to ASP.NET MVC Core (though Peter has some suggestions on easing that pain).
If you know how to create an ASP.NET MVC View, you know a great deal about how to create pages in Blazor. But, by packaging up pages as Blazor Components, you can use (and re-use) those pages more like objects.
Central to ASP.NET Core is the collection of objects that give you access to ASP.NET Core functionality. Here's how to access it, how to add to it and an example of how to use this technology with the "difficult" cases.
