VB.NET SelfHosted backend with vue.js as frontend

One of the project I have been working required a Windows service and I am familiar with VB.NET and services using VB.NET. I used to create a separate UI that communicates with the service and handle it but creating a proper user interface that looks good and functional was hard for me because I am much of the backend guy and with some knowledge of bootstrap.

So first step involving is preparations of what we need and I made the list:

So, I installed my RPI via LAN so that it connects to router directly and doesn’t need WiFi configuration in case change in WiFi password. Now the Raspberry PI is running, I open it via SSH to configure remote access.
