Never RESTing - RESTful API Design Best Practices Using ASP.NET Web API

Designing and building RESTful APIs isn’t easy. On its surface, it may seem simple – after all, developers are only marshaling JSON back and forth over HTTP, right? Believe it or not, that’s only a small part of the equation. There are many things to keep in mind while building the systems that act as the key to your system.

In this session, Spencer will delve into several best practices to keep in mind when designing your RESTful API. Attendees will learn about authentication, versioning, controller/model design, testability, documentation and change management. This session will also explore the do’s and don’t’s of RESTful API management so that you make sure your APIs are simple, consistent, and easy-to-use.

Examples will be done using ASP.NET Web API and C#. However, this session will benefit anyone who is or might be working on a RESTful API.

An Opinionated, Maintainable REST API Architecture for ASP.NET Core

Writing a brand-new RESTful API using ASP.NET has never been easier, or so you’ve been led to believe. Create a project, write a few models, and scaffold – instant API for your website! While convenient, this leads to a lot of pain as your API scales. Testability and maintainability become more and more difficult as your codebase continues to expand. Eventually, you’re left with a huge mess of code and zero separation of concerns.

In this session, Spencer will provide a highly-opinionated and easy-to-learn pattern for creating scalable, maintainable APIs powered by ASP.NET Core. Attendees will learn about dependency injection, validating requests, executing requests via services, error handling, and versioning strategies to make sure your API lasts for the long haul.

Building a ReSTful API in .Net Core Web API

You've heard about ReSTful web services, you may have even worked with people who say they have a ReSTful web service. Maybe you're not even sure what makes a ReSTful service different from a SOAP service. Maybe you just want to see how it would be done in .NET Core. I will show you how to develop truly ReSTful web services using Microsoft's latest version of the .NET framework and in particular, the newest version of Web API! I will show you how to expose Hypermedia within your new API and what the benefits are. You will learn the basics of setting up Web API in .NET Core and how to make it sing ReSTfully!
