Learn .NET Core from Scratch – from an empty Console


Learn all that .NET Core has to offer by starting from a blank Console App and building a fully MVC Application.

What you’ll learn

  • All the components of .NET Core Framework
  • .NET Core MVC
  • .NET Core Razor Pages
  • .NET Entity Framework
  • .NET Identity Framework


  • Visual Studio, at least 2017 edition


Before jumping to Projects we need to understand how .NET Core framework is built.

To achieve that we need at least three ingredients:

  • Firstly, start from a blank Console App and re-create the whole framework by understanding every component and how it reacts to requests.
  • Secondly, we need to understand the interactions between different components of the Framweork like Middleware, Service Container, etc.
  • Thirdly, add .Net frameworks like Entity Framework and Indentity and create business logic .

We will start from a Main method inside a Console Application and then add WebHost, so that we run as a web application, receive a Port, and then add all features that compose .Net Core Framework. We will proceed in this manner with all the components, adding them one by one so that we would get a deeper knowledge.

Understanding also the MVC pattern is more than essential and being familiar with NET Core Razor Pages pattern would render us an advantage in building projects.

What is important to note, is that learning step by step the whole framework might help you understand better what is “under the hood” when you write default methods and classes that .NET Core framework provides from you, out of the box. This is also efficient in terms of being able to extend and adapt according to your business need anytime you need.

* Not the last, exercise what you’ve learned by following the projects in the course.

** New projects will be continuously added and old ones will be updated.
