Kick off meetup - A presentation by Glenn Block on Windows Azure Mobile Services

Thanks to Glenn Block for agreeing to give a presentation at our Kick off meet up. Glenn is coming over to NZ for Codemania and works for Microsoft.

Thanks also to Thiago at Microsoft NZ for helping arrange this.

Glenn's presentation is all about exposing REST endpoints.

Agenda:
5:00 - 5:30pm Arrive, meet & greet
5:30 - 5:35pm A few brief words from the organiser
5:35 - 6:30pm Glenn's presentation
6:30 - 7:00pm General chat (over a beer or two - thanks to MYOB)

Please, come and see Gareth at the meetup if you have ideas for other meetups.

The aim is to run a meetup approximately every 2nd month.

    The author makes an interesting point that Rest API design should start with security and end with functionality. http://programming.oreilly.com/2013/08/tesla-model-s-rest-api-authentication-flaws.html

    Hi Glenn.
    I also checked out your webcast on hypermedia. Which was interesting and informative. Unfortunately I could hardly read the projection of your desktop on the overhead screen, so your coding example was of no use.

    Thanks Glenn. Simple enough to follow and detailed enough to be interesting. I now have a much clearer idea of how to plug in this kind of service into my ORM framework.

    Thanks to Microsoft for hosting Glenn's meeting. If anyone else has been tussling with OAuth-enabling their system, and you would like to have a quick catch up some time to share experiences please give me a call!
    Cheers,
    Andrew

    I'm looking forward to seeing everyone at Microsoft's offices down at the Viaduct on Wednesday.

  • Mark Y.

    Yes, the Win8/Phone 8 workshop is intended to start on time, and goes through till about 9.

  • Densial E.

    This clashes with the Win8/Phone8 workshop starting at 6:00, any chance anyone knows if the workshop will start on time?
