GraphQL is becoming more and more popular on the market as one of the most widely used communication standards for your service layer.
There are several advantages in adopting it over a classical RESTful API layer: flexibility is obviously the main one, but you also get advanced features such as notifications, caching and support to microservice architectures pretty much for free.
During this talk, we'll show some examples of how to leverage the peculiarities of GraphQL with an ASP.NET Core application, to build an interoperable service layer which works with different clients, like Blazor as well as React.js.
My name is Marco and I have an incredible passion for technology which I had the privilege to turn into a job. I’ve been working with .NET since the first beta, focusing on ASP.NET and, more generally, anything that is web related. I’ve been an early adopter of Microsoft Azure – who remembers the portal in Silverlight? :) – and, since its introduction, Cloud technologies have represented the core of my professional interest.
Today I work as a freelance Solutions Architect in the beautiful London, focusing on Cloud transformation. Getting involved in the .NET and Azure community is also a key aspect of my profession: I’m convinced that knowledge sharing is one of the best ways to improve our professional skills, and therefore I try to dedicate as much time as I can to activities such as writing articles or speaking at conferences and meetups. Thanks to that, I’ve been awarded as a Microsoft MVP for the last 11 years in a row.
Passing data through a pipeline of transformations is an alternative approach to classic OOP. The LINQ methods in .NET are designed around this, but the pipeline approach can be used for so much more than manipulating collections.
In this talk, I'll look at pipeline-oriented programming and how it relates to functional programming, the open-closed principle, unit testing, the onion architecture, and more. I'll finish up by showing how you can build a complete web app using only this approach.
