The Life of a Web API Request

Stephen Fulcher (Founder of Crocodile Software)

In this talk we will take a fun roller-coaster ride through the Web API pipeline to see exactly what happens over the lifetime of a request and response. We will start at the IIS entry point and explore the ASP.NET runtime events, the key modules, synchronous and asynchronous threading behavior, the request handler, the request and response streams, extensibility points and a few best practices along the way.

After working with Microsoft as a Principal Engineer and Regional Director, he founded Crocodile Software to bring game-changing technology and services to businesses large and small. Along the way, he has been a speaker at numerous technology conferences, developer meetings and product launches.
