What is the official API to use for HTTP communication "from now on"? I now in the past certain libraries have been the focus, but with Web API in ASP.NET and things being pushed to various likings, I'd like to know what is recommended for the future of IoT and Netduino (3 and 2+, in my case).


I hope my question make sense.


Thank you,

Hi Rob,

For client, today's most powerful/best option is to use the HttpWebReqest object...or NetworkStream/SslStream.

That said, there are also some great helper libraries out there that you can use (if you prefer those over the core .NET classes).

Chris, this would actually be a really good topic for a new Best Practice thread :)

Having a good example on how to retrieve HTTP data is relevant for absolutely everyone who buys Netduino 3.
