Building Web APIs in Windows Azure with WCF to reach any device

Slides (view online)
Web app developers today are facing new challenges around how to expose data and services to multiple devices, browser apps and other cloud services. In this session we’ll explore how the Windows Communication Foundation Web API makes it easy for developers to expose their services and data to a broad set of clients and take advantage of rich emerging Web standards like WebSockets. We’ll show how simple it is to create new Web APIs, whether you are building Web apps or standalone services to expose existing functionality or data.

  • Very cool session and very exciting looking forward.  Cannot wait to get my hands on the samples and quickstarts on codeplex.  Looks like a lot of thought has been put into the future of Web APIs (testing, ease of implementing and consuming).  Very cool.

    WCF Web API Preview 5 is awesome!  Will you be posting the sample code from this session somewhere?  (The code with the Autofac and RavenDB sample implementations.)

  • @kcs yes I am planning to post the sample,
  • @CodingSalmon thanks for the feedback! Glad you like the API and the quick starts.
  • Hi all

    I've posted the ContactManager using RavenDb sample that I showed in the talk here.

    To launch the sample.

    1. Download the zip / right click / properties / unblock all files. 
    2. Launch RavenDb by running start.cmd in the Raven folder.
    3. Once the Raven Explorer launches go to the Tasks menu and select import. Select the ContactManager.bak file located in the root folder.
    4. Run the sample solution.

    this looks pretty awesome. When do you think will this stabilize so we can ship it in our products?

  • Hi Peter


    Preview 5 is much more stable than our previous releases. As far as when our RTM will be, our plan is to ship V1 along with the rest of the web stack (MVC 4 etc) next April.

  • PeterPeter

    Thanks Glenn, that gives me a clearer picture.

    I only hope you'll 'ship', rather than 'shop' V1 in April ;)

  • We'll do both Smiley
