Talk Description:

Designing a Restful Api in Minutes with Backand
Are you like me and dislike having to waste time crafting an API for standard CRUD operations? Are you a front-end developer that doesn’t want to become a database expert in order to create your Restful Api? Then worst of all after once you do finally finish crafting your API, you have to figure out how to host it and get it deployed. This takes a lot of time away from you being able to focus on your UI and getting it out to the market.

Back& can take all of this pain away and allow you to focus on your UI and not crafting your API. Create your data model and Back& will generate the Restful Api for you. If you already have a database, just point Back& to it and Back& will generate the Restful Api from that database. If you also need user/password authentication, social login authentication, server side logic, or hosting, Back& has you covered here as well.

In this session, we will examine the features of Back& , walk through the creation of an API, hook the API up to an AngularJS application and then deploy it to the Back& hosting.
