Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Shawn Widermuth. Welcome to my course, Building an API with ASP.NET Core. I'm a Microsoft MVP, instructor, and developer. The skill of building a web‑facing API isn't optional anymore. Whether you're building a website, a mobile app, a SPA, or an enterprise tool, building a well‑designed API is required. In this course, I'm going to introduce you to REST. We're going to design and build an API from start to finish and show you how to version your API too. Some of the major topics we'll cover include use ASP.NET Core to build reliable APIs, understand REST and when to be pragmatic about it, how to use models and validation, and how to version your APIs. By the end of this course, you'll know how to implement an API that's easy to use and easy to maintain. Before beginning with this course, you should be familiar with ASP.NET Core and Entity Framework Core. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn to create an API with ASP.NET Core with my Building an API with ASP.NET Core course, here at Pluralsight.
