Workshop: Creating APIs on Steroids with gRPC - Part 2/2

What's that in the sky? Is it a plane? Is it WCF? No it's better. It's gRPC that's now natively supported in ASP.NET Core. It's more efficient than any API technique you've ever used and it's is way, way faster. That makes it very suitable for communication between microservices.


In this workshop you'll learn what gRPC is but most importantly you'll gain hands-on experience implementing one in ASP.NET Core. Of course consumers of the API and authentication won't be forgotten.

You'll leave with the ability to create and consume APIs on steroids.
