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 - #1 You have to migrate now!

If you're an old-school DNN developer you're used to using ASP.net Forms - and you've developed tricks and techniques to compensate for various issues like clean SEO-HTML, JavaScript-Control-IDs and more. Things have changed - but most DNN-dudes don't realize this yet. Because the future is in absolute HTML control - using Razor. Let me tell you why, and how to get started. 

This is part 1 of the Series The Future of DNN Speaks Razor. In this post I'll explain why you have to migrate now.
