"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.

At Build 2014, Microsoft unveiled Windows 8.1 Update 1, Windows Phone 8.1, and Visual Studio 2013 Update 2. In addition, we introduced the ability to use the new Universal App project-type in Visual Studio to write for every Microsoft platform with a single, shared code base. I will introduce the Universal App model, demonstrating this new paradigm around the Visual Studio Solution – shared projects. What does it mean for Windows developers?

"await State.Current.Progra­mmingAsync();" by Shawn Kendrot

Come chat about the current state of asynchronous programming in .Net with Shawn Kendrot. He'll discuss how development differs on the different platforms (Windows Store, Windows Phone, .Net 4.5) because they are not identical. We'll investigate these new magic async and await keywords, when to use an asynchronous model, and how you can make functionality asynchronous.
