In our November meeting, the topic will be REST!
Our speaker will be Marc Ypes, one of CakePHP's core developers. He will guide us through the important parts of REST, like HTTP headers, caching, authentication and how we should handle them. We are also very excited to work together with this month's host: Tweakers. Various members of their team have been active contributers to AmsterdamPHP and its great to finally visit their offices, they will of course be taking care of the food and beers!

Talk: "Create a RESTful API"
REST was first described in 2000, but just recently started gaining popularity over SOAP and RPC-style api's. This talk will go through the important parts of REST style API's, including topics like HTTP headers, caching, authentication and more.
