The Ultimate Guide to gRPC in ASP.NET Core

Enroll on Educative

gRPC is a high-performance communication protocol that works over either HTTP/2 or HTTP/3. It can be used by any programming language and framework, including .NET. gRPC libraries with client and server components are included in ASP.NET Core—the main web development framework of .NET. In this course, you’ll walk through all key parts of using gRPC on .NET. Next, you’ll learn how to use all types of remote procedures supported by gRPC. Then, you’ll get familiar with Protobuf, which is the main message serialization protocol used by gRPC. Next, you’ll learn both the fundamentals of Protobuf and its advanced features, including the ability to extend it. After covering the gRPC fundamentals, you’ll go through some of its advanced features, which include API versioning and performance best practices. By the end of this course, you’ll have learned how to create gRPC applications on ASP.NET Core and create low latency and high throughput applications that are especially useful for time-sensitive applications
