[5:04] What does Shawn mean when he says he offers real value consulting.

[7:43] Shawn gives us the rundown on what’s new in next-generation web services.

[13:57] What is the magic of SignalR?

[21:04] What does gRPC look like? What are the libraries?

[23:23] Does Shawn have any favorite gRPC samples?

[24:36] Where would Shawn want to see web service APIs like in the future?

[28:50] With web service APIs, the normal thing is for every different request, there's a different URL that you call. But for asynchronous queuing, it’s normal to have one queue address and any number of these message types. Yeah. Why the difference?

[33:28] Does SignalR have a guaranteed delivery configuration?
