Talking between services with gRPC, and other tricks

Monolith applications are almost unheard of in today’s world, with most applications talking between a host of servers – whether micro- or macro- for data and functionality. A wide range of service layers exist for this, but .NET Core 3 adds first-class support for gRPC, Google’s preferred offering.


In this session, Marc Gravell looks at how you can integrate gRPC between your applications – or to external gRPC resources – with efficiency and high performance, including new options for publishing and consuming gRPC services
