gRPC and .NET - A love story
Trekanten, Monday 16:20 - 17:10

You have probably heard about gRPC, the contract-first high performance RPC framework which works across multiple languages and platforms. But did you know that gRPC is now also a first-class citizen in the .NET ecosystem?

In this session, we’ll look at gRPC and how it works in .NET. You’ll learn how to build gRPC services with ASP.NET Core and how to call gRPC services using a .NET Client. We will also learn the differences between the two gRPC implementations in .NET, Grpc.Core and dotnet-grpc.

Whether you want to learn how to handle Inter-Process Communication in polyglot microservices, or just looking for a substitute for WCF, this session is for you.
