In this blog post I show how to set up a basic CRUD ASP.NET Web API REST like service and how to consume that service from a C# Windows XAML 8 app (‘modern style’ that is). I lso show how to build a simple user interface in XAML powered by data retrieved from our service and how to leverage MVVM pattern to make the code a little bit more maintainable.
