Modern Web Applications built with HTML5 and JavaScript frameworks are increasingly popular both for their light weight and performance. These Web apps built with responsive features run in a modern browser and provide a rich smart client experience that is generally consistent across different browsers and platforms. In this session, you'll learn about Modern Web Applications using a JavaScript framework as an implantation choice, their viability, advantages/disadvantages and comparison to traditional ASP.NET Web applications. With a deep supporting cast of available technologies on both the client and server side to support building a JavaScript Web application, there's no shortage of choices. You'll see some of the popular technologies used in building a Modern Web application including AngularJS and JS/TypeScript for the front end, with a combination of WebAPI, Azure Web sites, and Azure Mobile Services on the backend.
