Building web services today can be very confusing. It is not easy to pull together all the different technologies required to build an API or distributed service, because there are so many choices. ServiceStack makes things much simpler by providing a convention-based "stack" of services that allow you to build a clean service-based API using standard web service formats and protocols, without having to worry about all of the infrastructure needed to provide it. This course explains what ServiceStack is, and how you can use it as an alternative to ASP.NET MVC, Web API and WCF for quickly building elegant and speedy applications that can run on just about any platform. If you want a simple convention-based approach for building services and APIs in .NET, and you want it all in one package, you may be interested in checking out this course.
