Building and Securing RESTful APIs in ASP.NET Core

Thu, 09/20/2018 - 20:00
Most people have heard of RESTful APIs, but the underlying concept—representational state transfer (REST)—still causes confusion. REST is all about modeling resources that change. RESTful APIs use REST architecture along with HTTP requests to transfer data and changes in application state between clients and servers. This course breaks down the principles of RESTful design and show how to build secure RESTful APIs on top of ASP.NET Core. Nate Barbettini answers questions such as: What is RESTful design? How do you perform RESTful routing? How can you build reusable classes to represent resources? What role does caching play? And how do you secure RESTful APIs? He also covers topics such as data modeling, hypermedia relationships, and authentication and authorization. By the end of the course, you should know the basics—how to properly request and return data in ASP.NET Core—and the best practices for building secure and scalable APIs to serve web clients, mobile clients, and beyond.

Maya: Retopology for Animation

Wed, 09/19/2018 - 20:00
Retopology is a fun combination of artistry and technique. Characters that are sculpted in programs like ZBrush or Mudbox are usually too dense to animate correctly. Retopology takes an existing sculpted model or 3D scan and optimizes the mesh for efficient geometry and more natural animation. Instructor Ryan Kittleson shows how to import the original model, plan the refined edge flow, and create new geometry, and modify the polygon mesh. By the end of the course, you should be able to apply the same theory to prepare any character for rigging and animation.

SOLIDWORKS: Shell and Beam Modeling in FEA

Wed, 09/19/2018 - 20:00
Much of CAD design uses 3D elements for finite element analysis (FEA) simulation. However, sometimes thin-walled or frame-like structures dominate. In these cases, shell (2D) and beam (1D) elements can represent designs more effectively. Across all industries, as much as 50% of the design of major engineering projects fall into these categories.

In this course, instructor Tony Abbey explains how to work with shell and beam models in SOLIDWORKS. Learn when to use shell, beam, and specialized truss elements; understand the fundamentals of modeling with them; and find out how to mesh, postprocess, and model components with these tools. Tony shows how to set up and run these FEA simulations to test the integrity of your designs and view results such as stress, force, and displacement.
