Who This Book Is For

This book is for .Net developers who wants to Master ASP.NET Core (Web API) and have played around with previous ASP.NET Web API a little, but don't have in-depth knowledge of it. You need to know and C#, and have some , , and JavaScript knowledge.

What You Will Learn

  • Acquire conceptual and hands-on knowledge of ASP.NET Core (MVC & Web API)
  • Learn about HTTP methods, the structure of HTTP content, internet media types, and how servers respond to HTTP requests and their associated HTTP codes
  • Explore middleware, filters, routing, and unit testing
  • Optimize Web API implementations
  • Develop a secure Web API interface
  • Deploy Web API projects to various platforms
  • Consume your web API in front end application based on Angular 4, Bootstrap, and Ionic
  • Implement and explore the current trends in service architecture

In Detail

Microsoft has unified their main web development platforms. This unification will help develop web applications using various pieces of the ASP.NET platform that can be deployed on both and LINUX. With ASP.NET Core (Web API), it will become easier than ever to build secure HTTP services that can be used from any client.

Mastering ASP.NET Web API starts with the building blocks of the ASP.NET Core, then gradually moves on to implementing various HTTP routing strategies in the Web API. We then focus on the key components of building applications that employ the Web API, such as Kestrel, Middleware, Filters, Logging, Security, and Entity Framework.Readers will be introduced to take the TDD approach to write test cases along with the new Visual Studio 2017 live unit testing feature. They will also be introduced to integrate with the database using ORMs. Finally, we explore how the Web API can be consumed in a browser as well as by mobile applications by utilizing Angular 4, Ionic and ReactJS.

By the end of this book, you will be able to apply best practices to develop complex Web API, consume them in frontend applications and deploy these applications to a modern hosting infrastructure.

Style and approach

Using a hands-on approach, we cover both the conceptual as well as the technical aspects of the ASP.NET Core (Web API) framework.
