Server-Side Development

Server-side development is the makings of what happens when serving a web page to a client (such as a web browser).

If a client requests a web page, it will send the request to the server, and the server will return HTML code if it is able to do so. The client will then take that HTML code and translate it into something more pretty.

Server-side development can be used in the form of creating web applications, and there are many ways of creating web applications. Microsoft created ASP.NET back in 2002 and was supported up to 2017.

In-recent times, Microsoft has developed ASP.NET Core which is a complete rewrite of ASP.NET MVC and ASP.NET Web API, which were separate in ASP.NET. It has also incorporated some of the popular plugins, such as Dependency Injection.

And if you are severely behind schedule, and working all the hours god sends to deliver the work, you are going to have to cut corners and unit […]

Changing controllers and actions using one route in ASP.NET Core

1 month ago

I was presented with a challenge recently. Six different types of pages wanted to appear after a generic sub directory. Well that’s fine. In MVC, you can just set up six different routes to cope with the six different types of pages. Each of those routes can have a different default controller and action. Job […]
