Level up your API with Hypermedia
Play Level up your API with Hypermedia
In the world of Web Services, REST is the new black. We are starting to move away from the heavily coupled client server interactions which came with SOAP and in to a world of lighter weight, simple REST services. But we should not be fooled! Calling a web service RESTful does not guarentee us a loosely coupled system. To level up our API we need to sheild our clients from changes on the sever - in essence provide a stable API over time. One way to do this is to take advantage of Hypermedia. In this session we will explore not only what Hypermedia is, but how we can start to implement it in ASP.NET WebAPI.
