This post is part of my 12 Days of .NET series. This is a (not terribly ambitious) series of posts on .NET topics that came up while I was working on a recent C# Web API project.
I’ve used Pluralsight a lot over the last few months, to try and learn some of the new stuff I needed to know to get my current project done. I went ahead and renewed my membership recently, so I’m set through 2018. We’ll see how much use I get out of it in 2018.
Here are a few courses I finished recently:
- Introduction to the ASP.NET Web API by Jon Flanders
- Implementing an API in ASP.NET Web API by Shawn Wildermuth
- Visual Studio Code by John Papa
That last one didn’t really have anything to do with my current project, since I used VS 2017 and not VS Code, but I was thinking about using VS Code for it, initially. I like VS Code as a tool, but, given a choice, I’ll stick with the full VS 2017.
And I’ve started this course: Web API v2 Security by Dominick Baier
I actually have a lot to learn about security and authentication/authorization for Web API, but it’s not that important for my current project, since it will only be used internally.
I have a lot of other videos bookmarked in Pluralsight. I’ll probably get around to watching a few of them, but I haven’t really been spending much time on that lately. At work, I’ve been busy programming, and at home, I’ve been busy watching Netflix and reading comic books.
