Building APIs can be a challenge for many web developers but with ASP.NET Web API, this process can be simplified. In this course, Building an API with ASP.NET Web API, you will learn foundational knowledge and gain the ability to implement and build your own API's. First, you will learn and understand the role of Functional APIs in larger systems. Next, you will discover how to build association APIs to make obvious, self-documenting APIs. Finally, you will explore how to implement a complete API using Web API. By the end of this course, you’ll know how to implement a complete, maintainable API using ASP.NET Web API.
When you're developing an ASP.NET project, knowing how to handle data and validation can be confusing. Phrases like view-models, data transfer objects and entities are thrown about casually and some developers can be confused about what to use when. In this course, Shawn Wildermuth will attempt to clarify the best practices by showing you how entities, validation, and view models work together in ASP.NET MVC and ASP.NET Web API.
Code reviews often get skipped when schedules are tight. It is only later when there are problems, that code reviews are often part of a postmortem analysis of a project, or are even part of an external review. In this course, Shawn Wildermuth will share with you lessons he's learned from doing many of these reviews for companies.
Implementing a practical REST-based API can be a challenge. My previous course (http://pluralsight.com/courses/web-api-design) covered how to design a RESTful API while avoiding the dogmatic religion of REST but embracing the best of the pragmatic parts. In this course, I'll show you how to take that design and implement it in ASP.NET Web API including controllers, routing, dependency injection, versioning, security, hypermedia, REST constraints and caching.
