Start Me Up: Configuration and DI in ASP.NET Core

Adoption of ASP.NET Core continues to grow in development shops around the world. The .NET community offers a nice selection of templates for getting a new project moving quickly. On the other hand, more complex applications may require you to go deeper than what comes out of the box. The configuration and dependency injection systems in ASP.NET Core are flexible and powerful, and it is worth understanding the details of how a modern web application on the framework spins up on start.

This session provides a walkthrough of the Startup and Program classes, the host and app builders, configuration, DI, and middleware. Learn how to build your own middleware providers and pipeline. Create custom extension methods to register services with your application quickly and easily. Leverage the power of ASP.NET Core to work best for you and your organization.

Building Realtime Serverless APIs with GraphQL

GraphQL is making a huge splash in modern serverless applications. GraphQL allows you to present custom apis that allow the consumer of the API to decide what information they want and how it should be shaped. It also allows for real time pushes of data using web sockets and subscriptions. In this talk, you will learn how to implement this powerful API in the cloud using serverless functions in Azure. You will learn how the GraphQL query language works and how to shape data to suit your needs. You will see push notifications in action with Subscriptions and understand the different ways to manipulate data. Come learn how to reinvent the way you think about APIs and build realtime serverless APIs with GraphQL
