Building a friendly .NET SDK to connect to Space

Space is a team tool that integrates chats, meetings, git hosting, automation, and much more. It has a HTTP API that lets you integrate third party apps and workflows. That API is huge, though!

In this session, we'll focus on just the API. You will see how we built the .NET SDK for Space, and how we make that massive API more digestible. You will see how we used code generation, and various C# language features, to incrementally make the API feel like a real .NET SDK.
