Advanced Features in Web APIs

The ASP.NET Web API framework allows a single Web service to communicate with multiple clients in various formats such as XML and JSON directly over HTTP. The architecture is designed to support applications built with REST, but it does not force new applications to use a REST-style architecture. In this session we’ll discuss various ways of creating and consuming Web APIs, different output formats, including BSON, and tools for testing and debugging.

Build a Skill for Alexa with Web API and Azure

Amazon Echo, Amazon Tap and Echo Dot have brought voice interfaces to life for the home. We will discuss ways to integrate your existing software or database into an Alexa Skill, allowing for voice-activated, meaningful interaction with a user. Using this SAAS approach, with Web API hosted on Azure can make this process easy for rapid prototyping. We will build and deploy a skill that you can use immediately with your Alexa enabled device, and discuss the challenges of the publishing journey to get in Alexa's Skill Store.

Never RESTing - RESTful API Design Best Practices Using ASP.NET Web API

Designing and building RESTful APIs isn’t easy. On its surface, it may seem simple – after all, developers are only marshaling JSON back and forth over HTTP, right? Believe it or not, that’s only a small part of the equation. There are many things to keep in mind while building the systems that act as the key to your system.

In this session, Spencer will delve into several best practices to keep in mind when designing your RESTful API. Attendees will learn about authentication, versioning, controller/model design, testability, documentation and change management. This session will also explore the do’s and don’t’s of RESTful API management so that you make sure your APIs are simple, consistent, and easy-to-use.

Examples will be done using ASP.NET Web API and C#. However, this session will benefit anyone who is or might be working on a RESTful API.

Creating a Solid Web Application Architecture Using Angular (2+) and ASP.NET Core Web API

Modern web applications built today typically consist of various technologies used to deliver the final solution. Over the last several of months, there have been significant new developments both in front-end frameworks for building single page applications as well as back-end frameworks designed for applications hosted in the cloud. In this session, we will explore using ASP.NET Core to host a Web API that provides services to an Angular (2+) single page application. As a developer, you will take away from this session a solid understanding of how to design a modern web application using these technologies.
