APIs don't need to be difficult. In this course, Using HttpClient to consume APIs in .NET, you’ll learn to integrate your .NET applications with an API. First, you’ll explore HttpClient internals and basic CRUD interaction. Next, you’ll discover how to work with streams, compression and how to cancel requests that are no longer needed. Finally, you’ll learn how to improve the reliability of your requests and how to write unit tests that use HttpClient. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of using HttpClient needed to integrate your .NET application with an API..
Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Kevin. Welcome to my course, Using HttpClient to Consume APIs in .NET. I'm Microsoft MVP and freelance solution architect currently focused on APIs and security. In this course, we're going to learn how to integrate with an API from a .NET application. Some of the major topics that we will cover includes creating, reading, updating, and deleting resources, improving memory use and performance by working with streams and compression, using HttpClientFactory for HttpClient instance management, and writing custom HttpMessageHandlers. By the end of this course, you will have extensive knowledge on how to integrate with any API from .NET application. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with C#. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to integrate with an API with the Using HttpClient to Consume APIs in .NET course, at Pluralsight.
