Web API Demo
This repository contains sample code, PowerPoint, and documentation for my ASP.NET Web API presentation. It includes the before and after code.
Modern web applications have seen an explosion in Web API creation. Twitter, Facebook, Google, Azure, you name it - it is becoming essential to provide a Web API so that consumers can build applications and mashups on top of your services. Web 2.0 has shown a trend away from SOAP towards a REST architecture style. With the new ASP.NET Web API, Microsoft is now providing first-class support for HTTP services including tools to apply the richness of a REST architectural style. This demo heavy presentation will show how the new ASP.NET Web API will enable you to build rich HTTP services in a REST architectural style while leveraging custom media types, custom HTTP handlers, jQuery and more! The presentation will also cover new features of MVC 4 including Razor enhancements, support for mobile apps, and single page applications.
