Build the ASP.NET WebAPI side of a JavaScript Single-Page App

  • Feb 27, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

In our brave new world, many web apps are now Single Page Applications written in JavaScript. Basically, this means that instead of having lots of static and/or dynamic pages generating lots of HTML, we now often have an html page that has just a few lines. Those lines would be just some basic header files, a css file included and a couple JavaScript include files. There are several JavaScript frameworks that support this scenario: Sencha’s SenchaTouch and ExtJS, as well as Dojo, Yahoo’s YUI and others immediately come to mind.

In this presentation, we will focus on what the back end ASP.NET server can look like to support these kind of applications, and how to use Repositories and unit tests. This style of web apps development raises interesting issues - so bring your questions and concerns!

    A lively discussion took place in the meeting on what framework people use / want to use. As a follow-up, Peter suggested making a poll on that topic - so if you have a minute, please share your preferred SPA framework!

    Thanks Adwait. That's a pretty intimidating picture! I think I'm going to to need some words to describe it also.

    Wanted to do a quick intro, I am looking for a co-founder CTO for our healthcare startup referralMD. We connect primary care and specialist providers and automate the current referral and authorization workflow that is currently being done with the fax machine and triplicate forms.
