I have been using asp.net since 2002. I have always appreciated how well you all have done video tutorials and webinars on new features in asp.net. For the 2013 release information on key components like Identity in web forms is severely lacking. All
I can find is a basic Introduction which does not dive into the subject matter near deep enough. The changes for the old Membership and Role Provider and Profiles is a dramatic one, one requiring a large learning curve for us amatuer developers. ASP.net
2.0 was great, easy to learn and simple to use. Now you have muched it all up. I realize that this was required for all the new was the internet has grown, but at least provide us with information on the new features. If you are going to provide a VS Express,
make it so we can at least find the answers.

I wrote a post that provides a little bit deeper analysis of the features and design of ASP.NET Identity in VS2013:

Thanks for the feedback. All content for ASP.NET Identity can/will be found at
http://www.asp.net/identity. A lot of content is planned/in the works but much of it was not ready for the product release.
One of the articles linked to from http//www.asp.net/identity is
http://www.asp.net/visual-studio/overview/2013/creating-web-projects-in-visual-studio#indauth. Here you will find an overview of Identity and other resources for more information.

I appreciate both of the replies, and hopefully content will be provided soon on how to mimic the old membership, roles and profile provider. I am trying to create a school based system with roles such as; Teacher, Student, Parent, Administration, District.
With the ability to set profile properties. This was pretty simple in asp.net 2.0, and now it seems much more code centric without the management tools once available.

This should help a bit with authentication and roles:
I hope they will give us more documentation soon...

There is definitely more documentation/articles coming. You should check
http://www.asp.net/identity daily, as there are multiple articles in process and they will be released to the site as soon as they are ready. Last night we added
Adding ASP.NET Identity to an Empty or Existing Web Forms Project.
