Beginning gRPC on ASP.NET Core

gRPC allows you to enable components of your distributed application to communicate effectively with each other and it requires very little code to do so.

gRPC is a network communication technology that has been originally developed by Google. It works over HTTP2 protocol and it is primarily used to enable communication between microservices in distributed clusters.

The core feature of gRPC is that it abstracts away all complex implementation details. For a software developer, using gRPC feels almost like writing code on the client application that can call endpoints on the server application directly, as if both of these are just parts of the same monolithic application. This makes gRPC incredibly easy to use and this is the reason why it became very popular in the last couple of years.

Since the release of ASP.NET Core 3, gRPC has been fully integrated with core system libraries of ASP.NET Core. And this video will teach you how to use this particular implementation of gRPC.


The video is intended for ASP.NET developers who primarily work on distributed web and cloud applications.


You need to know fundamentals of ASP.NET Core.
