Web API and REST
The MVC4 RC has been released, and Web API is perhaps the most exciting addition. Web API brings us new ways to build web services, especially RESTful services. But what constitutes a RESTful service? The idea of REST has been around for some time, and writing services in this manner has been possible before Web API. So what functionality does the new ASP.NET Web API framework offer? And how does it compare to other web service frameworks on the .Net platform, such as WCF?
In this talk, we'll look at what REST is and how to implement a simple service using ASP.NET Web API.
