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."
