QCON Talk - RESTful HTTP - Beyond the Intro Level

Can you sign up via this link please:



There is probably no developer left who hasn't been exposed to at least one introduction to REST, and most have by now gathered some first-hand experience. In this session, there will be no introduction, only advanced stuff, such as hypermedia aspects, security, format/resource/representation design, and implementation issues - with room for lots of questions (and hopefully, answers).

    Excellent talk by Stefan Stilkov. It cleared so many things in my head. And now I'm kicking myself for not moving to Web API early enough.

    Really informative, validated some things we do and also suggested ways to help improve.

    Stellar REST talk Stefan Stilkov wish I could bottle it and repeat in office tomorrow. Would like to have heard a bit more about caching strategies and perhaps a little about designing Rest APIs for both business to business and composite UI consumers. "How to persuade javascript hipsters that Rest is easier to support than json rpc". All in all excellent, articulate, succinct. Warts and all.

    Thanks Ian, I understand. Honestly I registered some time ago, via the mobile Meetup app and I have not seen the link.

    Marco, we use meetup to advertise our events. Because we don't own the venues we use, we have to work with their constraints. Often that is that folks register with them. We tried several strategies - closing to RSVP just seems to persuade folks we are full; leaving the RSVP open seems to result in some folks failing to register. We do mention in the text that you should register directly, and we have sent two messages to subscribers now to remind them of that fact.

    Other groups use the same approach - let you register here, but ask you to register on the provider's site. We can listen to feedback, but our hands are tied by what the host for an event wants from us.

    I don't understand why a meetup has been created where there is no point of registering? I signed up and scheduled to come and now I found out that I am left out because you need to be registered at the QCon site which is sold out...

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
