Kentico Xperience for developers
This course will teach you how to present Xperience content in MVC front-end websites. You'll find one mandatory module, named Essentials, and two optional ones: Builders and Identity.
Who should take this course?
If you're an ASP.NET developer with around six months of experience with general MVC 5 or Core MVC projects, but you're new to Kentico Xperience, this course is for you.
The course for Kentico Xperience 12 teaches about developing websites with ASP.NET MVC 5 (full-framework); the Kentico Xperience 13 version covers developing applications with the ASP.NET Core.
What will you learn?In this course, you’ll learn how to develop Xperience sites using enterprise-scale development patterns, plus how to:
- Display Xperience content on a high-performing MVC front-end website
- Build widgets that let content editors create pages in a near-WYSIWYG style
- Create custom components for online forms
- Build infrastructure that lets visitors register and access secured sections of the front-end
After completing the Essentials module, you'll be able to:
- Define Xperience page types and the overall content structure
- Use AutoFac with Xperience sites
- Use Xperience API to manipulate database objects
- Apply the service and repository design patterns

- Create page sections that distribute the contents in the page
- Create widgets that can be placed into page sections by content editors
