ASP.NET 5 Articles (blog posts and videos)

By November 19, 2015ASP.NET 5

I wanted to make an introduction video about ASP.NET 5 and show you what is new, but in the last 5-6 months it is very popular and in every conference somebody talks about this. There are a lot of blog posts and videos about what are the new things in ASP.NET.

So instead I decided to write a post to summarize all the good blog posts and videos. And in this case if someone asks me about ASP.NET 5, I can share one link with him with all articles and videos.

So, how to start with ASP.NET 5?

Authorization

There are problems with authorization in bigger projects. Default authorization is not enough. Here we have some interesting ideas how to solve some of the problems.

Paul Litwin shows us that migration looks easy, but with enterprise projects maybe we will curse the stack.
