Hi there. My name is Jeremy McPeak, and in the next few hours I'm going to teach you everything you need to know in order to get started with ASP.NET MVC 6. This is a very exciting time to be an ASP.NET developer, because Microsoft is making a lot of wonderful changes to the platform. Now, don't worry if you don't have any existing experience with ASP.NET. I will teach you MVC 6 from scratch. All you need to know is C#. And you'll need to download some version of Visual Studio 2015 from visualstudio.com. Now, if you go to the Downloads link, you're going see Visual Studio Community, Ultimate, and Code. Now, I use Visual Studio Community in this course, so you can download that. It is completely free. Just install it, follow the instructions, and you will have Visual Studio 2015 installed on your computer. Now, bear in mind that as I'm recording this course, ASP.NET and Visual Studio 2015 are still in beta. However, the platform is pretty stable, and you will learn what you need in order to get started with ASP.NET MVC 6. So when you're ready, queue up the first video and we'll get started.
