A complete, hands-on, and easy to digest program that gets you from zero to building production-ready APIs in just a few weeks

Why Learn ASP.NET Core Web API?

Ultimate ASP.NET Core 3 Web API

Why should you invest your time and money into this program?

Ever since .NET Core 1.0 was introduced, the whole .NET ecosystem seems to have been given a new life. The framework was revitalized and now with version 3, it has become a force to be reckoned with.

Not many technologies have achieved this level of polish, stability, maturity and speed. Creating a flexible yet stable technology is quite a feat, and that’s exactly what ASP.NET Core developers have achieved.

On top of that, REST APIs have become a defacto standard in the industry because of their ability to decouple backend and frontend parts of the application and the ability to serve thousands of clients simultaneously.

With every new version of the framework, it becomes even more popular so there is no time like now to hop on the bandwagon and start adding ASP.NET Core Web API to your skillset.

Moreover… If you’ve already mastered C# and OOP concepts, this is the next logical step. If you want to learn ins and outs of web development, data modelling, persistence, security, optimization… through simple and down to earth approach…

Then this is the right book and program for you.
