Sessions tagged with 'rest'

Bradley Holt (Found Line)
CouchApps are web applications built using CouchDB, JavaScript, and HTML5. CouchDB is a document-oriented database that stores JSON documents, has a RESTful HTTP API, and is queried using map/reduce views. This talk will answer your basic questions about CouchDB, but will focus on building CouchApps and related tools.
Today's hybrid cars give you the best of both worlds, and hybrid web apps can do the same. We'll walk through how NPR's Project Argo quickly built a blogging platform by combining the strengths of WordPress and Django. Along the way, we'll cover the benefits and drawbacks of this approach, considerations and details of our implementation, and best practices for any hybrid web application.

CouchDB is a document-oriented database that uses JSON documents, has a RESTful HTTP API, and employs map/reduce views for querying data. This tutorial will teach web developers the concepts they need to get started using CouchDB in their projects. Libraries are available for CouchDB’s RESTful HTTP API in many programming languages and we will take a look at some of the more popular ones.

A web API needs documentation, unit tests, functional tests and possibly a WADL. Usually one or more is out of date or just doesn't exist. The Unico DSL can generate all these for you from a natural-language document written by project manager-types. Build a quick API in this session and BELIEVE.
Peter Neubauer (Neo Technology)
Location-based services are hot, but geographic datasets are complex. But this shouldn’t put you off writing awesome location-aware services. This talk will show how to create spatial models and query the Open Street Map dataset together with social data using the Neo4j graph database.
Daniel Jacobson (Netflix)
The Netflix API has been incredibly successful in getting your favorite movies and TV shows on to hundreds of devices. It is handling billions of requests and is the centerpiece of the Netflix distribution strategy. Given this tremendous success, why are we completely redesigning the API? Come and find out how we plan to make the API better, scale it in the cloud and improve our API's efficiency.
Mike Amundsen (API Academy, CA Technologies)
One of the key properties of RESTful Web applications is the ability to evolve over time. Too many Web APIs don’t evolve; they just get old, and useless; they rot. Why? Because they are little more than URI-based RPC calls returning serialized objects. Instead, Web APIs should rely on well-crafted media-type messages driven by links; they should be more RESTful.
