Matthew Smollinger - Moving Beyond REST: Mobilizing your data on iOS!

In the past few years, seemingly every device has become “Smart.” Everything from your television to your toothbrush now stores, retrieves, and displays information from the Internet, and from that device’s surroundings. In this glorious new domain of the “Personal” Area Network, is there a place for good ol’ REST when many of these devices don’t even connect directly to the Internet? I’ll show you why, with the help of our new SDK friends CloudKit, HealthKit, and Multipeer Connectivity Framework, it’s time to give REST some rest.
