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.
