How would you like an API that doesn't use REST, but contains just one endpoint that has the ability to return data in a form that exactly suits the data-consuming application? This becomes a reality with GraphQL for .NET.
Having an API that doesn't use REST, and contains just one endpoint which has the ability to return data in a form that exactly suits the data-consuming application is very powerful. After watching this practical course, Building GraphQL APIs with ASP.NET Core, you’ll be ready to implement GraphQL in your ASP.NET Core API and write queries against it. First, you will explore how using GraphQL has lots of benefits compared to REST or SOAP. Next, you will very quickly understand the basic principles of GraphQL and shortly after, you can start building your own GraphQL endpoint in ASP.NET Core. Finally, you will discover how schemas provide metadata to clients, how queries are written for data retrieval and mutations. By the end of this course, you will be amazed by the ability that your GraphQL endpoint has to actively contact the client when changes occur with subscriptions.
