About the Talk

Traditional .NET development frameworks tend to be big, and cover all possible eventualities, and for many projects this is A Good Thing. But for just as many, if not more, projects, a full one size fits all service solution like WCF is just overkill, and adds unnecessary complexity. This is A Bad Thing.
In this talk, I'll go over a lightweight, low-ceremony approach to creating a public APIs for the web in .NET. I will show how to use REST and the Nancy framework to create service applications with less code, less cruft and fewer maintenance headaches. We'll follow the super-duper happy path of Nancy, .NET's answer to Ruby's ultra-lightweight Sinatra framework, to create RESTfull API's that takes full advantage of HTTP and it's ubiquity to make building client applications equally enjoyable.
