In this workshop,  we will be learning how to develop web applications using ASP.NET Core 3.0. We will be creating and developing an online music store with a SQL database to use for data storage. Starting with a demo database, we will create a Web API with a data access library using Entity Framework Core to support both the ASP.NET Core Blazor front end and an Angular app. Finally, we will learn how to test and deploy the application to AWS and Azure.
