Since my last blogpost about Web API Glenn Block appeared on Hanselminutes so it seems to be hot stuff at the moment. Having already written part of this blogpost, as it was actually part of the last post before I decided to break it in half, it seems a good time to finish it and get it out there. So building on my last post I will also take a look at how Web API plays along with JQuery and the new JQuery templates.

Over the last couple of weeks I have been looking a bit at the WCF Web API which I think is looking very promising. Web API is one of Microsofts newer open source projects, aiming at providing http based services on top of WCF - while providing an easy to use API that give developers full control. In a way this makes me think of MVC, which has given control of the markup back to the developers, just like Web API is trying to do for http. Already loving what MVC has done for me, this makes me very positivt about the approach right off the bat.
RESTful services seem to be all the rage these days, which made me look at some of the choices we have as developers for doing REST. This was really my first look at Web API, so with it being one of the more exciting news at MIX11, it was only natural to take a deeper look.
