In this session, we'll review the fundamentals principles of OWIN and demonstrate building a modern Web application using the Katana components.

In the age of cloud computing, applications must be able to be quickly composed and even more quickly evolved. Large, monolithic frameworks are not able to meet the demands of ever-growing needs for functional diversity and release agility. The OWIN specification and Microsoft's set of OWIN components (the Katana Project) seek to provide a solution to this challenge by creating an ecosystem of small, pluggable components built around a lightweight server abstraction. In this session, we'll review the fundamentals principles of OWIN and demonstrate building a modern Web application using the Katana components.

You will learn:
  • The relationship between OWIN, the Katana project, and the broader ecosystem of OWIN components
  • To use the Katana components to construct a modern Web application
  • To construct custom OWIN middleware components
