Topic: Enjoying the Move from WCF to the ASP.NET Web API

Using the ASP.NET Web API for callbacks on your client-facing web servers makes a lot of sense, especially if you're using Microsoft's MVC framework. But many developers are beginning to see the value in using the Web API in the middle tier, too. Reusing skills and code from the web in the development of core services is an alluring prospect. Making the leap from WFC to the Web API can be daunting, however, because the systems are quite different from one another. In this session, we'll compare the WFC object model and its conventions to the Web API, using code to draw comparisons between various features. When you've completed this session, you'll be "Thinking in HTTP" and ready to try the Web API to develop your application's core.
