Web API Design Jumpstart

New to Web API design? Or experienced but want to know more?

Whether you're brand new to the ​framework or you want to take your design to the next level, this course has the answers! In this set of modules I walk you through Web API technology, uses, and nuances. See how the toolset makes it easy to build consumable RESTful services, accessible by a variety of clients from myriad platforms.

Are you an MVA member? Go through the course online here.

Get a good look at token-based security features, route attributes, error handling, and versioning. See why it is the ideal way to surface APIs that target browsers and mobile devices. Hear details on how you can easily use the built-in Visual Studio templates or explore customization, design, and implementation. Check out this informative and practical Web Wednesdays event!
