We're going to do things a little differently this month - we're going to have a virtual speaker - Luke Stokes. Luke is the co-founder and core developer of FoxyCart.com which is an ecommerce shopping cart system built in PHP by developers for developers.
He'll be presenting about some of his experience in moving their REST API from the POX (plain old XML) structure to a hypermedia linked API. Here's his summary:
You may have been told you’re doing REST “wrong,” but you don’t know why. You may have heard the term “Hypermedia API,” but you’re not really sure what that means. You may also know quite a bit about APIs, but want to see an API that’s done “right.” If so, this talk is for you. We’ll explore FoxyCart’s API move from POX to HATEOAS and some new ways of documenting and thinking about Hypermedia APIs.
Join us on Tuesday at 7pm at the SoftLayer offices on Alpha for this meeting. Luke will be presenting live, so there will be time for Q&A at the end.
