Do you want to work with a thoughtfully architected, obscenely fast, thoroughly enjoyable web services framework? Fancy learning to build a full-featured ReST API?
ServiceStack (https://servicestack.net/) is a "thoughtfully architected, obscenely fast, thoroughly enjoyable" web services framework. In this session, we'll build a full-featured ReST API. If you've ever built web services using WCF or WebAPI, you'll find ServiceStack's clean architecture, POCO models and request/response approach a breath of fresh air.
We'll look at getting up and running with ServiceStack; implementing your first service method; building a strongly-typed API client package, documenting your API. We'll cover profiling, logging, IOC, authentication - and some of ServiceStack's advanced features like SwaggerUI integration and the Markdown view engine. We'll look at testing, and how ServiceStack enables a granular approach to testing, from mocking service dependencies up to full integration tests with a local HTTP listener and LocalDB SQL database.
Come along if you're fed up of the XML hell of WCF configuration; if you're tired of WebAPI treating your resources as glorified pages; if you want to host Razor-driven websites without using IIS, or if you're just curious about the state of the art in .NET web application architecture.
Please Note These are hands on sessions, so please bring a laptop and power leads as well as recent version of Visual Studio (2010, 2012 or 2013)
