Modern Data Services


In this all day hands on session you will learn what it takes to develop Micro Data Services. Together we will create a Code First Data model that we will expose through a WebApi. Our first WebApi will be using MVC 5, followed an Owin hosted WebApi running as a Windows Service and then we will port it over to Asp.Net Core.

We will learn how routing works; how and why naming your routing is important; how to create custom responses, How do GET, POST, PUT, PATCH and DELETE; how to test your api; how to secure your Api with by user and by application using bearer tokens; how to use OWIN middleware, how to do background processing so your API is always responsive, how to cache data and optimize and how to do Entity Framework Code First implementations.

By the end of the day you will have 3 services that all returns data in proper JSON format that can easily be consumed by JQuery, C#, Java, Objective-C, PHP. etc…
