  • ASP.Net Web API - From Web to REST in 60 minutes

    by Paul Glavich

    As Microsoft technologists, we have had many ways to build Api's and it has often been an arduous choice. From ASMX web services,3rd party libraries, WCF Web Api to MVC itself. Finally we have a really nice aggregation of all these things in the Asp.Net Web Api. The best of MVC, gets mixed with WCF Web Api to embrace the REST way of developing Api'. Come see how we have arrived with this latest Microsoft offering, and how you can use it to build your Api's that make embracing Rest practices a breeze. We will look at simple support for basic Http verbs, through to single page apps, logging, authentication and all things api-ish.

  • LESS CSS for .NET developers

    by Mohamed Meligy

    When a developer writes CSS, they quickly notice the must-have features which CSS does “not” actually have, variables, functions, and calculated operations are most obvious examples. As the web evolves, developers have become more exposed to HTML5, JavaScript, and CSS3 on daily basis. So, they came up with a number of languages that come and fill in the gaps in them. Out of those languages, LESS is the one that looks most just like plain CSS. LESS provides a number of handy extensions to CSS that developers especially love most. In this session, we go through those features and where they fit for modern web development. We also go through the .NET developer experience working with LESS, from IDE integration (using Visual Studio) to build integration and minification, and some bonus tips for large projects.
