Montreal 2020 sessions

Let's Talk HTTP in .NET Core

English session - Intermediate

In this talk, Steve will explore how we can build .NET Core applications that make HTTP requests and rely on downstream services. This session will focus on improvements which have been released in .NET Core, such as IHttpClientFactory and the new, more performant socket-based handler. Steve will identify some HTTP anti-patterns and common mistakes and demonstrate how we can refactor existing code to use the new HttpClientFactory features.
