Modules are a significant improvement to the functionality to our angular projects.

To sort or filter through data in an angular material table you can use the sort method, and also the filterPredicate method.

The value and downfalls to a cdn based version and a local angular material. Local Installation…

Angular JS: Supports Model-View-Controller design. The view processes the information available in the model to generate the output.
Angular: Uses components and directives. Components are the directives with a template.

API controllers deal with data, controllers deal with the API controller and the view.

WCF is used for developing SOAP-based services whereas Web API is used for both SOAP-based and RESTful services. WCF does not offer any support for MVC features whereas Web API supports MVC features

As the name implies, attribute routing uses attributes to define routes. Attribute routing gives you more control over the URIs in your web API.

ASP .NET MVC is used to create web applications that return both views and data but ASP .NET Web API is used to create full-blown HTTP services with an easy and simple way that returns only data

OAuth is about Authorization while OpenID is Authentication.

When you pluralize an object, it creates a set of objects with a similar identifier and something to separate them, such as a number. User1, User2, User3, User4. Whereas a singular is just a single object.

As there are many addition to EF core 6.0 I will point out some rather interesting ones. 1. Asynchronous Queries and Save support 2. Logging of database commands 3. Translate String.Concat with multiple arguments.(

This week in class I learned how easy it is to change framework versions. All that is needed is the file in which calls the framework in use, than specifying the desired version, if applicable.

Lazy loading is just loading data manually and not automatically when starting the program.

We can load data by using Lazy loading, Eager Loading, or Explicit Loading.

An entity set is similar items that share a same features, such as a student roster. (Name, birthday, grade)
