The Talk

Getting Started with Web API 2

Are you getting ready to build an API that works over HTTP? ASP.NET Web API 2 is probably your best way to do it. In this talk, Shawn Wildermuth can show you how to create your own API!

Host in the Cloud with Azure Web Sites

Controlling your own machine or VM in a data center leaves much of the responsibility for maintaining the OS to you. Why bother. In this talk, I’ll show you how to host your code in Azure Web Sites regardless of the technology. I’ll show you how to do it with ASP.NET, WordPress and NodeJS.
