Many APIs claim to be RESTful, but what does that actually mean? What does it take to build a scalable API with ASP.NET Core?
In this talk, I’ll share best practices for building APIs on the ASP.NET Core stack, as well as the “hows” and “whys” of designing RESTful interfaces. The session will include real code examples and a discussion of REST best practices.


Topics covered include:


* What is REST and HATEOAS?
* What is the real difference between POST and PUT?
* How to represent hypermedia in JSON
* Building clean, lightweight API controllers
* How to secure the transport layer


The talk will take place on 11/13/2017 at the Headspring office 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm.
