Remote procedure calls (RPC) have been around since the beginning of time – most of them never copped a speeding ticket! Many of us have lived through XML-RPC – SOAP – .NET Remoting – WCF – JSON-RPC and most recently – REST.

Back in 2015 Google threw their hat into the ring with gRPC, promising faster more efficient communication, cross-platform clients and streaming request and responses.

In 2019 Microsoft released .NET Core 3 which includes gRPC.
During this exciting session, Liam will explain and demo why you need to add this cool new Microsoft feature into your new .NET projects. Your services will be so fast you will smell the burning rubber!
