These days ASP.WebHooks is one of the most demanding library that provides a flexible way to create and consume WebHooks. I am happiest one who started writing webhooks since its inception. I clubbed all important things related to WebHooks in the shape of a free e-book.
This is not possible to complete this book without the support of a great and well known industry experts. I am thankful to Henrik Frystyk Nielsen for all his guidance during arranging the contents, Nick Harrison for his recommendations during technical review.
Book writing takes a lot of time. Sometimes, it needs your personal/family time. So, I want to thank all who motivated me and allowed me to spend time on this book, time that I was supposed to spend with them. My first thank you is to my wife, Shuby Arora, for her support in all ways. Then, I would like to thank my angel, Aarchi Arora (the newest member of our family). A great thanks to my parents and Guru Shivprasad Koirala whose blessings are always with me; this is because of them. I would like to thank the entire Syncfusion team.I am glad who is having great friends, my friends Deepak Rajendran, Manish, Ronen,Chen,Kamlesh Kumar, Rahul, Digvijay, Raju are awesome and I am thankful for their all support.

WebHooks are user-defined HTTP Callbacks, which are configured with an event and will invoke an event trigger (callback). The magic about it is that the source of the event could lie in the same application or be external. Callbacks can be configured and managed by users of the applications and developers.

Why did I write this book?
I wrote this book for all those self-learners who really want to make something different (including myself).
During my talk in Delhi, India on ASP.NET WebHooks, I faced many questions from people wanted to know how they can write their own API that supports ASP.NET WebHooks. There is plenty of material (to start) available on WebHooks, but in this book I have crafted this material so that anyone can follow the step-by-step guidelines to write their own ASP.NET WebHooks Receiver/Sender.
Who is this book for?
This book is intended for practical, day-to-day programmers— developers, architects, consultants, solution-providers, etc. The current version of this book requires a few basics to understand the code:
• Understand basic concepts of C# and ASP.NET
• Understand basic idea of OOPs
• Can write or represent code, program, or code-snippet
• Understand basic idea of REST
Yes, that is all that’s really required to get started with this book.
