ASP.NET, as far as I know, goes back to version 1.0 of the .NET framework. Microsoft scaffolding stood the test of time and nowadays we can use it in a variety of servers, scenarios, and environments.
Circa, boot camp Grand Circus era, our capstone project for the 8-week course was a (.NET framework) MVC application that was to be coupled with a REST API. Finally, the application was to be published and deployed to Azure. Our access to the API was not free - soon after the boot camp ended we would have to stop hosting the web application on Azure. With that being said, the code is still available on Github and you can see the progression of commits.
Given financial hurdles with the API and the inevitable changes on the horizon for ASP.NET Core...it was time for other pursuits.
