Migrating SignalR from ASP.NET Web API 2 to Self Hosted Server (Part 3)

This is the last one of the series I’ve planned about SignalR, this time I’ll demonstrate how can we migrate the SignalR system that we previously created to a self hosted server and in that way have a very light weight server application that will have all the functionalities that we need and nothing more than that. The point is to get the exact same behavior of the server as we had it when we build it with WebAPI2.

In case you missed the first part about SignalR and want to discover more on what is happening on a lower level please check my previous article SignalR: What is happening under the hood (Part 1).

The code is available on GitHub and the solution currently contains two projects, one for the client implementation and one for the server implementation. Later, I plan to add another project here for the self-hosted server and we’ll use the same client but this time using this server.Read More »

Testing the power of ASP.NET Web API + AngularJS

Well, this demo project includes a lot more than ASP.NET Web API and AngularJS, but, the main purpose of the project is to test how well this two function together. Because this is the first time that I use AngularJS from scratch to build a project I have picked few PROS and CONS. The demo is automotive data library which includes detailed specification for more than 25.000 car models and has more than 150.000 gallery images for different car brands/models.
