A SkillsCast for this session is not available.
In this workshop, we'll implement the same microservices-style ReST API in several different .NET web frameworks - currently WebAPI, OpenRasta, ServiceStack and NancyFX. Attendees will get hands-on experience of the idioms, architectural patterns and conventions used by these frameworks. We'll discuss how some frameworks are better suited to certain kinds of applications, and how to support advanced ReST patterns like OAuth2 authorization, resource expansion, HAL and HTTP PATCH support in each of our frameworks.
Attendees should arrive with a laptop running Visual Studio 2013 and IIS, a working knowledge of C# and HTTP, and ideally know how to fork and clone a GitHub repository. Attendees should leave with a good understanding of modern ReST API patterns, .NET API frameworks, running code on their laptops and (hopefully) smiles on their faces.
