Users of web applications are demanding more. More interaction, more usability and a better overall user experience. A great way to do that is with AJAX and REST services. These technologies allow developers to create interactions in web applications that rival desktop applications. But many developers don’t have all the pieces of the puzzle, or don’t understand how to put them together.

This session will introduce you to REST based services and demonstrate how to create these services in .NET with either WCF or ASP.NET MVC. You’ll learn how POX and JSON are different than SOAP, and which to use when. Finally, you’ll see how to tie this altogether in your web application using the JQuery JavaScript libraries and letting it do the heavy lifting for you.

You will learn:

  • How to build enhanced interactivity into their ASP.NET web applications
  • How services play a crucial role in delivering this enhanced user experience
  • To create REST based services on two different platforms (WCF and ASP.NET MVC)
  • The JQuery library and how it can jump start their client side ASP.NET development
