Building real world production-ready Web APIs with .NET Core

You might have started building your microservices-based Web APIs using .NET Core. And you are ready to go into production. Did you think about hosting, scaling, monitoring, versioning, documentation, resiliency and logging? Because going into production with just your business logic is not enough. In this session you will learn how you have to build your evolving Web APIs using .NET Core and the Microsoft platform and run in a robust, hyper-scale production environment. You are going to see topics like cloud patterns for fault handling and Polly, OpenAPI and Swagger, Application Insights, semantic logging and find out what your Web API needs to survive production.
