Well I gave up on the last book because I couldn’t get past the errors from that missing file. I decided to try the book listed above instead.
The one note to make so far is that in Startup.cs the editor wants to autocomplete to services.AddMvcCore in ConfigureServices, but this is incorrect. As per the book, it should be services.AddMvc and when an error comes up there is a suggested solution to follow (to include another framework).
Unfortunately Visual Studio crashes my computer once in awhile, but so far I’ve gotten halfway through Chapter 4 without much problem.
