RESTful APIs allow today's massively distributed systems to communicate and run efficiently, which is made possible by using API standards, standard query syntax, consistency around everyday API operations, and conventional means of deployment.
In this course, you'll explore API response standards for returning data from API methods calls. Next, you'll learn how to implement standard responses and use XML response serialization, basic Web API operations, and the OData V4 query syntax. Next, you'll learn how to perform web API conditional operations, implement route names using nouns and verbs effectively, and use functions, actions, and custom actions. Finally, you'll learn how to deploy an API and web application projects to a local server and the cloud, respectively.
