Building Services with ASP.NET Web API

Available September 2017

Services expose data and processes through APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) implemented using common approaches or standards. Decoupling our back-end from our front-end makes it possible for our services to support multiple client apps. We can even allow other developers and organizations to consume and use our services to further broaden the reach of our applications.

In this course, you’ll learn how to use the ASP.NET Web API framework to build a RESTful service or HTTP API. As you learn about Web API, you’ll create a service for the Fitness Frog single-page web app (SPA) developed using Angular.
