In this session you'll learn the new features in Web API 2.

Well if you thought you had new stuff to learn with MVC 5, you're not done learning if you're also a Web API developer. But as in the case with MVC, the new Web API 2 stuff includes welcome additions like External Authentication, Katana hosting, and the most-awesome Attribute Routing. And if you're into OData, there are also some new options to help shape your responses even further. Whether you think Web API is "Restful" or not, it's still totally cool and a must-know for any developer today, and part 2 makes it even better.

You will learn:
  • What's changed and what's new with Web API 2
  • Dev Techniques for using new features
