As a consultant, I am often times asked to move the sun and stars for clients in a short amount of time. Often times, this means creating creative solutions to expose data from existing 3rd party DNN which do not offer a rich API for me to work with. With technologies such as Knockout and Backbone, having a rich JSON service to access data from 3rd party DNN modules allows me to deliver the ''impossible'' for clients. In past years hacks such as creating generic handlers have been used to create an API, but recently DNN has included a framework which extends the Microsoft Web API and makes delivering data from your module, or other DNN modules a snap. In this session we will explore the tools and strategies for exposing a rich API within your DNN project.
