The Web API makes it relatively simple to design and build business functions that can be used with a broad array of clients from desktops, to smart-phones, to tablets. These clients may leverage WPF, Silverlight, HTML5, or technologies on other platforms like Java. Come to this session to learn how to harness the power of the Web API to build scalable, cross-platform interoperable web services that can be deployed to Azure.

You will learn:

• The basics of routing for Web API services
• How to create web services for CRUD and non-standard operations
• How to work with media formats like XML, and JSON
