API's RRS feed

    Hello,

    On the subject of API's. 

     I am trying to get a clearer understanding of them and how they co-exist with Visual Studio (if they can at all).

    Is it possible to build a web dashboard using Visual Studio 2008 based on APIs? 
    Or are APIs suited for Windows only applications? And what is Web API?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    And what is Web API?

    I suggest you start reading here: http://www.asp.net/web-api.

    Sure, it'll involve either ajax or websockets (in .NET there's a great addition called SignalR). On the client you would make use of javascript to show things like graphs, ticker information, ...
