Azure App Service provides a robust architecture for developers building web and mobile applications with complex workflow and numerous third-party integration capability. Underneath these features is a new resource born out of the need for simpler REST API hosting and discoverability known as API Apps. In this session you’ll learn how to use Visual Studio to build, deploy, and debug API apps running in Azure. Using Visual Studio’s new code-generation features, you’ll see how API apps can be easily consumed without writing complex (or boring) HTTP calls, JSON parsing, or redundant model objects representing REST API surfaces. You’ll also get a preview of how your API apps could be shared with other developers, who could install them directly from the Azure portal, making their own app-dev experiences more efficient.
