In this session, we will discuss the business scenarios where Web Forms, ASP.NET MVC and Web API fit better.
The One ASP.NET initiative is praiseworthy but you'll probably appreciate more its inherent cleanliness once you've clarified a few things about differences and practical scenarios that involve three apparently similar ways of doing the same old thing: building a web site using the Microsoft Web stack. In this talk, we discuss the business scenarios where Web Forms, ASP.NET MVC and Web API fit better. In particular, we'll focus on the reasons that make Web API and MVC look similar though they're radically different.
You will learn:
- Web Forms vs. MVC
- There are reasons to decouple the System.web API from your code
- Web API is the first step in an IIS-independent but still web-oriented world
