gRPC is a new, growing way to connect services in a cross-platform, cross-language way. But it can be overwhelming to determine when to use. In this course, Using gRPC in ASP.NET Core, you will learn foundational knowledge about how to use gRPC in your own project and services. First, you will learn where to use gRPC in your own data centers and microservice architectures. Next, you will discover how to implement gRPC as part of your new or existing ASP.NET Core projects. Finally, you will explore how to build clients for gRPC, both in .NET and in Python. When you’re finished with this course, you will know how and when to most appropriately use gRPC in your own projects.
Too many APIs are just built on an as-needed basis. In this course, Designing RESTful Web APIs, you will design your API to meet your needs before you embark on implementing the service. First, you will explore the design philosophies of creating an API on top of REST without the dogma. Next, you will discover how to design APIs to take URIs, verbs, message bodies, versioning and security into account. Finally, you will examine how creating an API can stand up to the test of time instead of extending your proof of concept into a supported API you can't get rid of. By the end of this course, you will have complete understanding and knowledge to produce useful APIs for your project.
Creating large, monolithic SPAs is all the rage, but not all solutions need a single page application. I found that improving parts of my web projects with islands of functionality was better in many cases, but the complexity of Angular and my hatred of .jsx made me yearn for a modern framework that is simple and straightforward. That’s where Vue came in and saved the day.
Visual Studio Code let's you write your ASP.NET Code projects on Windows, MacOS, and on Linux. In this course, Using Visual Studio Code for ASP.NET Core Projects, you'll learn how to install, create, and debug ASP.NET Core projects using Visual Studio Code. After watching this course, you'll be able to write your applications using this small, fast tool across multiple different platforms.
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.
