The week in .NET – 2/23/2016
To read last week’s post, see The week in .NET – 2/17/2016.
Package of the week: RestSharp
Interacting with REST resources may in theory be just a matter of using standard HTTP, but in practice, there is still ceremony involved around serialization, and authentication. RestSharp is a library that facilitates REST interaction from .NET code.
Here’s how you’d query a hypothetical directory service for information about employees:
