Introduction to NancyFX on Pluralsight
Earlier this week, Pluralsight published my first course, Introduction to Nancy. The Nancy framework, or NancyFX for short, is a web framework started by fellow Elegant Coder Andreas Håkansson (@thecodejunkie). I feel very fortunate to have had Andreas and Steven Robbins (@grumpydev) available to provide feedback on the course content.
Some may wonder why I chose to create a NancyFX course…
The short answer is: I love this framework!
You may have seen me speak at the Boise and Portland Code Camps, as well as Boise user groups. If you have, you know that I love to show-and-tell open-source technology I am using to solve real problems. NancyFX is a framework that I have the privilege of working with almost everyday with much success. Therefore, I want to ensure that this framework is seen as equal to, if not better than, the offerings of Microsoft (WebForms and MVC). Pluralsight is a trusted resource that is incumbent in many organizations and I hope to infect viewers with some verve for alternatives.
In the course, I show the basics of working with the Nancy framework, including modules and routes, the bootstrapper, view engines, and testing.
If you have a Pluralsight subscription, please take a look.
If not, you still have some great resources available, including:
- A free Pluralsight trial subscription
- The documentation wiki
- The Google group
- Jabbr’s NancyFX room
- Various blog posts and videos on the interwebs (including some here on Elegant Code)
