.NET Big Picture: Front-End and UI Development

Instructor: Walt Ritscher

When you think about what makes an application successful, it’s hard not to picture its user interface (UI). But as a developer the choices can get overwhelming, and the platform you use to create your UI often looms large as a question for your business. In this course, instructor Walt Ritscher walks you through the benefits and tradeoffs of each option when you’re building a UI on the .NET Framework.

Discover the wide range of choices available to you as a .NET developer, so you can pick the UI that’s best for you. Get tips unique to desktop development, including how to work with WinForms, WinUI, and more, before turning to web development and ASP.NET, and exploring models like Web Forms, MVC, Razor Pages, and Blazor. Walt shows you how to get the most out of cross-platform mobile development projects with .NET MAUI and other active third-party frameworks. By the end of this course, you’ll also be poised to better leverage graphics technologies such as GDI+, DirectX, and Unite.
