Get Ready: ASP.NET 5 is a significant redesign!
with Ely Lucas, Web and Mobile Developer, Aspenware
     ASP.NET 5 (aka ASP.NET vNext) is coming soon and with it are some major changes.  It has been redesigned from the ground up and is now completely open sourced, cross platform, and highly modular.
We will take a look at the new .NET Core CLR, the K runtime, and how MVC6 combines both MVC and Web API into a unified API.
     Come, join us in this preview and see how ASP.NET 5 is bringing the .NET stack into the modern web world.
