"Designing Pragmatic RESTFul APIs Using Asp.Net Web API" by Ely Lucas

Building a web based RESTful API for your application will help you reach multiple types of clients, from web browsers to mobile devices, and is a key component in today’s modern architectures. However, there is a lot of confusion over what REST means, and if you should call your API RESTful or not. During this talk, we will discuss what REST is and what it is not, and we will take an approach of designing a pragmatic API that will satisfy your business needs. We will use ASP.Net Web API, a framework that makes it simple to build web services over HTTP. Web API is now in its second release, and we will cover the basics as well as some of the new features introduced in the latest version.
Come and we will go over the basics of this exciting framework and combine it with the power of the ASP.Net web stack to create a full end to end application.
