Rails APIs/Javascript Front-Ends

We're going to do a two hour Meetup this time with two presentations:

First up will be Brian Cobb (@bcobb) talking about building APIs with Rails:

"Let's discuss the characteristics of powerful and pleasant HTTP APIs, and see how we can build those sorts of APIs in Rails. To motivate this discussion, we'll look at an existing Rails API, and gradually make it better with a helping hand from the Ruby ecosystem. There are a lot of smart people writing and thinking about this sort of thing, so we'll close with a few language/platform-agnostic thoughts on where one can go from here."

Next up, Steve Faulkner (@southpolesteve) will be talking about building Javascript front-ends that consume Rails APIs.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
