Building HTTP services for modern client apps (e)
In this day and age, your application might be built for more than just a single platform – it could be targeting browsers, phones, tablets, desktop applications or even "Internet of things" all the same time. With HTTP-based services, you can easily manage to reach all of them with a single, scalable backend. With that as a motto, the session will focus on building modern lightweight HTTP services for a wide range of clients, platforms and devices. We will explore building modern HTTP services on top of ASP.NET - supporting multiple formats (XML, JSON, OData), securing the API and documenting it. We will also discuss why embracing HTTP - which is simple, flexible, and extremely powerful - is so important in modern day development.
