Well, here we go! This is the inaugural installment of The Monsters Weekly, where we take you up, down through and over all the aspects of ASP.NET Core and Core MVC. In our first episode, we’re covering the startup.cs class and what happens as our application loads.
Not sure where to start in ASP.NET Core? Well, in startup.cs, of course. We run the file top-to-bottom covering some basic configuration, dependency injection, browser link, database error pages, service configuration and the Julie Lerman of Canada.

In this, Episode 2 of The Monsters Weekly, we take a deeper look at some of the configuration options and, in particular, how things have changed in terms of serving up static files in ASP.NET Core. We’ll show you how to enable it, how it works in the default template and what you need to do to get it running from a blank canvas.
