Announcing: Building a RESTful API with ASP.NET Core Course at Pluralsight

I’m very happy to announce that my latest Pluralsight course, Building a RESTful API with ASP.NET Core, is now live.

I’ve got to admit I’m quite proud of this one.  I aimed for it to be the most in-depth dive into REST I ever created.  With about 8 (!) hours of content, spanning 11 modules and more than 100 clips, I hope I reached that goal.

But by all means, see for yourself :)  Here’s the full description:

Building an API is one thing. Building a RESTful API is… something different. In this course, you’ll learn how to build an API that fits the REST architectural style, with ASP.NET Core. First, you’ll look into how you can correctly interact with your API by using the correct HTTP methods and status codes. Next, you’ll explore validation, logging, and common functionality RESTful APIs. Then, you’ll discover how to correctly use media types, and will look into versioning, caching, and handling concurrency. Finally, you’ll learn protecting and documenting the API. By the end of this course, you’ll have built an API with level 3 maturity, which is the highest possible level of APIs.

You can watch the course at Pluralsight. If you don’t have an account yet don’t worry: you can easily start with a free trial.

Happy coding! :-)

Kevin,
This is a great course with detailed information. I have learnt many new things w.r.t RESTful services.

Kevin,

I’ve watched the course, but I’d like to use some parts of the code, like the Property Mapping Service. Is it possible to add the finished example to a Github repo, so that we don’t have to type all the code over from the video?

Thanks for the very informative course anyway!

Hi Kevin, i enjoyed to course but
i have problem in understanding your code for HttpPatch example . in the method you wrote :

[HttpPatch(“{CityId}/pointsofintrest/{id}”)]
public IActionResult PartiallyUpdatPointOfIntrest(int cityId, int Id,
[FromBody] JsonPatchDocument PatchDoc)
{
…..
…..
….
pointOfIntrestFromStore.Name = pointOfIntrestToPatch.Name;
pointOfIntrestFromStore.Description = pointOfIntrestToPatch.Description;
return NoContent();
}
is this missing the purpose of patch by filling in all the fields of the object instead the only one that should changed ?
