Quick and Clean Umbraco Install

Hi, I became a huge fan of Umbraco by accident, or fate. The feeling feels like it has faded a little because I haven't been "in-the-weeds" on an Umbraco project in a while, but the fire is still there. Starting with Umbraco 7, the back office got hot. An Angular and services-based back-end that was a much called-for improvement over version 6.


This post is for you if you are a beginner or intermediate developer, with Visual Studio ready, and use C#/RAZOR.


In part one of this three-part post, I am going to guide you through the installation of Umbraco on a fresh MVC project in Visual Studio. Then, in part two, we're going to set up a custom template and create a content tree. In part three, we will create a custom Company Contacts page in your Umbraco site.
