ASP.NET Core APIs Succinctly
APIs are such a critical part of software that "API-first" has become a popular approach to development, one where the API is designed before the app itself is written. Without a well-designed API, your app is isolated from the greater app ecosystem. In ASP.NET Core APIs Succinctly, author Dirk Strauss guides you through designing your own REST API, using it to return and modify data, and versioning it as you continue to develop it. ...
