In my previous article ‘Getting Started With OWIN’ we tried to understand what is OWIN and Katana and why they are needed. In this article we will be looking at a simple demo application, which will allow us to start a webserver and return some content with a console application using the OWIN wrapper provided by Katana.
OWIN stands for Open Web Interface for .Net. It is basically a specification that mentions how to write middleware that connects 2 different platforms. You can think of it as a pipleline which sits in between 2 components, essentially making both of them decoupled.
