In this session, you will find out how to make a very REST friendly API using the new and shiny ASP.Net WebAPI technology set shipped with MVC 4. We will look at the way we have exposed API’s in the past, and how that has changed overtime to what we have today.
We will examine how to create our API to automatically handle HTTP verbs, easy support of multiple content types, usage logging, various media handling and much more. If you are creating a new API, or are currently using ASMX, WCF, WCFWebAPI or MVC to expose your API, come and see how to do it using the new kid on the block.
