Description

We all seem to be building RESTful APIs with ASP.NET Web API these days. But REST is bigger than that: it's an architectural system. If you're looking to learn what REST actually is and how to build a RESTful API with ASP.NET Web API, aimed at multiple client types (web/mobile), you're in the right course. This course is filled with best practices concerning URI design, data shaping, paging, caching, and versioning. It's very demo-driven, and we start from scratch. It contains an API and two different clients: an ASP.NET MVC client and a mobile client. To top it off, you'll also learn all about securing both client apps and the API with OAuth 2.0 and OpenID Connect. The focus is on what works for standardized API development for multiple (possibly cross-platform) clients.
