The Future of DNN Speaks Razor - #5 - WebAPI is great for Apps but not for Content

 

So I hope you're read my previous posts why you should migrate to Razor ASAP, what it is and why WebForms and ASP.net MVC are all dead. In this part I would like to delve into WebAPI, why It's awesome (especially for Apps) and why JSON-data is the future - especially combined with AngularJS or similar frameworks.

The Future of DNN Speaks Razor - #4 The Death of ASP.net MVC

Along came MVC to provide a new solution. And there are quite a few things it's done very, very well. And a lot of things that won't make it. Our goal is to focus our time and energy on the relevant parts and ignore the rest. In this part 4 of my Series The Future of DNN Speaks Razor, I'll explain why ASP.net MVC started well but was overtaken by the internet, and why the resulting good solution is still called MVC, even though it's not Model-View-Controller.
