ASP.NET Web API 2 Recipes My long promised book, ASP.NET Web API 2: Recipes has been published by Apress last week. I announced the book a while ago, when I also tried to explain the general idea behind the book. I nshort, I really wanted to write a no-nonsense, blog-like, problem-solution book for Web API.

Since then, as you may have noticed, the title got changed to reflect the latest iteration of Web API. The majority of recipes are compatible with both v1 and v2 of the framework, however some recipes are obviously Web API 2 only (i.e. attribute routing related), and there are actually a couple of ones in there that only work with ASP.NET Web API 2.2 - so it’s all up-to-date!

It’s been a tremendous journey 9 month journey (the work started in the winter) and there are so many people - the Apress crew, my friends, family, and most importantly, the wonderful ASP.NET community and the readers of this blog, that made it all happen. Thank you - I owe you guys big time!

You can get the book at:

The source code is at Github (I will blog about it separately). And please don’t be too harsh 🙂
