Restsharp is a .Net package that can be used to make http requests with the server in C#. It can send all type of requests like GET, POST, PUT, DELETE, etc. You can also send data along with request using  restsharp.

In the code snippet, we have sent a post request to the server which is taking firstname and lastname as data and we are adding these using .AddParameter method of RestRequest.
