2 Days of Spring with Josh Long: Building REST-ful services with Spring

Join us for 2 Back-to-Back Days of Spring topics with Josh Long!

Day 1: Building REST-ful services with Spring

Day 2: Have You Seen Spring Lately? 

Both days:

5:30-6:20pm pizza/networking
6:20-8:00 pm Talk & Q&A including 10 min bathroom break
8:00-8:30 pm wrap up/chat

Day 1 Title & Abstract:

Building RESTful Services with Spring 

Today's applications don't exist in isolation. REST applications and web services are a great way to connect applications together. REST is a design principle that imposes no constraints on the client except basic HTTP support, which all platforms provide. Designing REST services, however, is still as much art as it is science, as standards are emerging. Join Spring Developer Advocate Josh Long as he introduces some of the ins-and-outs of REST API design with Spring, building on Spring MVC, Spring HATEOAS and answers some commonly- asked questions like how to secure REST-ful services, and how to tailor payload serialization to your specific use cases.

    where can I get the video sessions for this meet up?

    November 11, 2013

    • Tamao N.

      Unfortunately, the video quality wasn't great for our first attempt. Josh will be doing the same talk soon and the venue will record that for us. We hope to share that version, which I'm sure will be better quality. I will post them as soon as I get it. Thanks!

    Are the video sessions uploaded ?

    • Tamao N.

      Note that this was my first go with the video camera. I will do my best to edit together bits from the video with Josh's screen capture this week. I'll email the group when they are ready. Won't be pretty, but hopefully practical ;)

    what about parking? is it available in the Pivota or need to look for public parking.

    October 29, 2013

    • Tamao N.

      Unfortunately, we do not have free parking. There is street parking and it looks like nearby lots = $3-$4.50 if you search 6pm-8:30pm: http://www.parkme.com...­

  • Alex

    Is there a place to park a bicycle nearby?

    1 · October 29, 2013

    • Tamao N.

      I should be able to fit a bike or two in our garage downstairs. I'll send you an email. At worst, I will leave a sheet downstairs with my cell #, which will be for everyone needing to get up to the meetup.

      Thank you!

    I have a conflict that funny enough is around the corner. I plan to attend day 2.

    October 28, 2013

  • Puttappaiah M.

    Can you please consider a online session. I live in South bay, It will be difficult to drive at peak hours to SFO. OR consider somewhere in the middle so that it is easy for all to attend.

    October 27, 2013

  • Abhishek S.

    Online session would be really great !!!

    October 25, 2013

    • Abhishek S.

      Will this be recorded ?? So even if not online, it may be later available on YouTube

      October 25, 2013

    • Tamao N.

      I'm looking into it, but these are in our cafe, ie - laid back, relaxed, which unfortunately can translate to bad lighting, bad audio, bad image if recorded.

      1 · October 25, 2013

  • Janardhan K.

    I too like to have an online session.

    October 25, 2013

  • Ken Z.

    doesn't have to be real time - a recorded session will do.

    October 25, 2013

  • Irfan

    Is there anything similar done in London, UK?

    October 17, 2013

    • Tamao N.

      Thanks for asking! Yes! I'm hoping to expand to our other offices once they are ready to go ;)

      October 23, 2013

  • Vinay

    Yes, Online session would be great.

  • Tamao N.

    We will see what we can do, but it is hard to guarantee that an online session will work. Internet can be unreliable.

    October 11, 2013

  • Bharath P.

    +1 request for online session

    October 11, 2013

  • Vamshideep

    Even I live in south bay, driving 2 days from south bay at peak of traffic would be very difficult... Can we also have an online session please?
