Spotlight Talk: ASP.NET 5: What Happened to Session and AppSettings?

ASP.NET 5 is all about using only the services you need. I will show you how to add the Microsoft.AspNet.Session service to Startup.cs. I will also show how to add the Session middleware to Startup.cs. One this is in place Session can be stored in a json string. AppSettings can be retrieved by creating a constructor in the appropriate controller which accepts an object holding the AppSettings. This is injected by runtime when creating the instance of the controller. ASP.NET 5 is a departure from what we are used to but hasn’t lost features we are accustomed to.
