Consuming Services in .NET by Example

GK# 5280

Course Overview

In this course, three different approaches to consuming web services using the .NET Framework and C# are covered. In each scenario, you will explore a publicly available web service and create a small application that utilizes the service in a fun way. More specifically, you will see how to leverage classes such as WebClient and HttpClient in our existing applications. You will also make use of the "Add Service Reference" feature in Visual Studio to generate service clients for us automatically.
