A Hotel Management Web Application is a specific type of Application that runs over the Internet through a Web Browser. In this article series, I will show you how to Develop a Hotel Booking Real-Time Application using ASP.NET Core Web API step by step.

In this article, I will give you an idea of how we are going to develop the Hotel Booking Real-Time Application. From the next article, we are going to start the actual implementation. First, let us understand the different modules that we are going to develop as part of this hotel booking application.
