Porting your ASP.NET app from framework to core

Speaker Name: Lachlan Barclay
Speaker Website:

After moving a bunch of my own applications to dotnet core, I realised that there was an easy road to take, and a hard road to take. Moving your framework application to dotnet core doesn’t have to be a dangerous experiment. By slowly moving your application across, one class at a time, you can make life easy for yourself and your users.

In this workshop we will cover:

  • The difference between Full-Framework, Core and Dotnet Standard
  • Slowly migrating your code to dotnet standard
  • Migrating from Entity Framework to EF Core
  • Wrapping full-framework only libraries
  • Bundling and minifying your javascript and css
  • HtmlHelpers and TagHelpers
  • Error handling
  • Caching
  • Antiforgery Tokens
  • WebApi
  • Moving parts of your ASPNET application to dotnet core
  • Avoiding the most common pitfalls and traps


To participate in this workshop you'll need the following tools installed:

  • Visual Studio 2019
  • Dotnet core 3.1
  • Dotnet framework 4.7.2
