It is now 12 years since ASP.NET was created. It has evolved into a multi-purpose end-all-be-all platform for hosting .NET code. With the birth of Node.js, a movement towards smaller, more efficient and platform-agnostic hosting environments have emerged. The pattern for consuming the web has also changed. The days when consumers waited for long-running transactional html-generating pages are long gone. Now, with single-page applications and smartphone apps, smaller and more frequent bursts of data are more common. To meet this pattern (and the NodeJs-movement) Microsoft had to re-invent their somewhat bloated web stack.
With the OWIN specification they created a very small interface between the server and the application. On top of this, projects like Katana are gaining in popularity. The latest project from Microsoft, Helios, is like NodeJs fully async and implements the very core of a web server.
We will in this session explore, code and deploy the new Microsoft stack to various environments.
