Getting a gRIP on ASP.NET Core gRPC

Introductory and overview

What's that in the sky? Is it a plane? Is it WCF? No it's better. It's gRPC that's now natively supported in ASP.NET Core. It uses the same underlying RPC principle of the good ol' WCF. It's just implemented better, it's more efficient and it's is way, way faster. That make it very suitable for communication between microservices for example. In this session I'm talking about what gRPC is but also how you can implement it right away in any ASP.NET Core application. I'll not only do that by building a gRPC endpoint into an existing ASP.NET Core application, but you'll also learn that on the consuming side there are also a lot to like. You'll leave with the ability to create and consume APIs on steroids.
