Episode 046 – Exploring ASP.NET 5 (vNext) with Jeff Fritz

In this episode we sit down with Jeff Fritz from Microsoft to discuss the changes coming in ASP.NET 5.  Jeff talks at length with the Hallway Conversations team about the introduction in ASP.NET 5 of formal support and integration in Visual Studio for front-end automation tools like Grunt and Gulp and Bower as well as helping us understand the scope of the other changes coming in the cross-platform story for ASP.NET.

We explore the enhanced role that NuGet will play in the overall ASP.NET development experience as well as take a deep dive into the development mechanics of what it means to have a choice between two versions of the .NET Framework (.NET 4.6 and .NET Core).

ASP.NET 5 will make it even easier for users to integrate their work both with other development ecosystems as well as other production environments like LINUX and in this episode Jeff takes us all on a detailed whirlwind tour through those changes in detail!
