Building beautiful RESTful APIs with ASP.NET Core

Thu 1:00 PM - LEADTOOLS - Rosewood Room

Many APIs claim to be "RESTful", but what does that actually mean? What does it take to build a scalable API with ASP.NET Core? What is HATEOAS and why is it a great conversation-starter around the campfire?

In this talk, Nate will share best practices for building APIs on the ASP.NET Core stack, as well as the "hows" and "whys" of designing RESTful interfaces. The session will include real code examples and a discussion of REST best practices.

Topics covered include:

* Why API design matters
* What is REST and HATEOAS?
* How to represent hypermedia in JSON
* Building clean API controllers in ASP.NET Core
