WebAPI 1.1 Basics - Hands-On introduction to WebApi

WebApi is the most important part of going forward. Since most of the web-magic of the future will take place in the browser (AngularJS, etc.) the server will focus on delivering application parts and data. This is where WebAPI comes in. In the first set of posts I'll talk about the basics of WebApi and I'll start with a simple example.  

In the following 7-minute Video, I'll show you

  1. How to install the pre-requisites for this tutorial. Here are the links you'll need:
    1. 2sxc (in case you don't auto-install like in the video)
    2. The basic WebAPI App
    3. Demonstrating the output
  2. Walk you through the parts of the demo, including
    1. The WebAPI Controller on the server
    2. The client side code
    3. Explain what happens in between by looking at the HTTP-traffic  

Let's go!
