Creating ReST architectures with ASP.NET MVC is more than just decorating actions with verbs. It’s about leveraging HTTP as an application protocol to its full potential. In doing so, we can create robust and scalable applications, not only from a performance point of view but also in terms of change and maintainability. ASP.NET MVC offers us great potential to create ReST architectures that can be consumed by computers and humans alike, reducing the amount of effort involved. Now combined with the WCF Web API which is focused exclusively around ReSTful constraint, MVC offers us even more possibilities. Come to this session to learn what ReST is really about and how we can create simple yet powerful systems with the Microsoft MVC stack.
