Wednesday, 31 May 2023

This book is a practical beginner’s guide to creating web APIs using ASP.NET Core. In it, Valerio De Sanctis develops an API that feeds web-based services, including websites and mobile apps, for a board games application. The book is structured to mirror a real-world development project, with each chapter introducing a new feature request. It shows how to build an API with an ecosystem of ASP.NET Core tools that help simplify everything from setting up the data model to generating documentation, using modern APIs utilizing REST and GraphQL standards.
