Real-time talk between Windows 10 IoT Core background task and ASP.NET Core web application

My previous blog post introduced how to make ASP.NET Core 2 web application run on Windows 10 IoT Core. It was default web application created on Visual Studio and published as an executable. But this is not enough for IoT scenarios. When we build web application that runs on IoT board we need this application to do something. Be it displaying sensor data or controlling some hardware. This blog post shows how to make Windows 10 IoT background task talk with web application using WebSocket.
