Introduction to gRPC on .NET Core 3.1

Since .NET Core 3.0, released in September 2019, we have support for the HTTP/2 transport protocol in ASP.NET Core. On top of this, we can now use gRPC, a modern communication framework with high-performance. In this session, Johnny will talk about the benefits and the differences with other communication frameworks and show you C# examples on how to build both clients and services based on a service definition using proto3 files. .NET Core integrated build tools will generate the necessary client and service code to help you create your services fast!
