ASP.NET MVC4 and Web API
I will be speaking this evening, March 15 at the WNC .NET Developers Guild in Asheville, NC on ASP.NET MVC4 and Web API. I will also be doing the same presentation on Thursday, March 22 at the Triad Developers Guild in Greensboro, NC and also on Wednesday, April 11 at the Columbia Enterprise Developers Guild in Columbia, SC.
Here is my presentation summary:
Microsoft likes big stacks! Look at Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) or, better yet, Windows Communication Foundation (WCF). With either of these “foundations”, you start out a noob and you come out the other side a freak’in Ph.D in Quantum Physics. It doesn’t have to be that hard! There has to be a better way.
Well, Microsoft has been definitely been going the right direction. If you have followed any of the work on the WCF Web API, then you know how awesome this stuff is. This is its new home but you can still self host just like you could before. We are talking about a Web API that is heavily Convention-Over-Configuration based! Gone are the days of looking through a myriad of documentation as to how to setup your web.config file. Those days are over and you will be surprised at how nice the new stack is.
Look forward to seeing you there!
