Over the years, our options for communicating between computers have evolved. When .Net first came out we had ASMX (SOAP) services. Since then, we've seen WCF, WebAPI (REST), and SignalR. In addition, .Net Core 3 introduced gRPC to the buffet. In this session, we'll overview the differences between these stacks and help you understand how to get started with each. We'll also explore when you should choose each option for your web service needs.

You will learn:

  • How to get started with WebAPI, SignalR and gRPC
  • Determine when you should choose each service option for your applications
  • Understand the history of services in .Net
