Sitefinity 9 for Developers Book

We at Falafel Software are excited to announce the release of the updated Sitefinity 9 for Developers book, available for immediate purchase in the Falafel Store.

This update includes an exclusive new chapter covering the new Web Services module introduced in Sitefinity 9, useful for building and managing API services for your Sitefinity content. As a result of this new update, the Web Services chapter has been entirely rewritten to offer a developer-focused look at its use, configuration, as well as helpful tips and tricks and even gotchas to watch out for when getting started.

Despite the introduction of this brand new module, the WCF services still remain a major part of Sitefinity. Being more mature and crucial to the operation of Sitefinity, they offer more complete coverage of the platform, and won’t be going anywhere soon. The newly updated Web Services chapter includes brand new content for working with the Sitefinity WCF services, as well as explaining in detail the differences between it and the Web Services module and how to choose which option to use for your projects.
