OWIN is a fairly new specification for modelling a HTTP server API for hosting web applications. The intent is to decouple the host from the application with the goal of providing a simpler programming model with potentially better performance than traditional web servers. While OWIN is a specification, Katana is Microsoft's implementation of an OWIN host. In this session we will further discuss OWIN, Katana and how to write applications and middleware that take advantage of this new and exciting hosting environment.
