Confessions of a ReST zealot

Mark Derricutt and his Official Heckler, Greg Amer, will be presenting (one up the front, one in the crowd) about the RIGHT way to do REST. Mark has been blogging about the deficiencies of the GeekZone REST API over at and we are going to give him an existing API and get him to rip it apart and see if we have time to design a new one for a different application.


This talk will lead onto a HAL discussion at some later date.


If anyone wants to sponsor the Pizzas it would be nice

    All being well we're going to try and stream the presentation via a Google Hangout via the JUG page at - we should also be recording the presentation to post online as well.

    I just recorded a super-quick teaser video of some of the HAL/HATEOAS stuff I'm going to talk about on Wednesday to - check it out and post any questions to this thread.

    I was considering proposing as a session for the Auckland Web Meetup as a larger session, or as a full JUG evening session ( or both! ) based on feedback/interest in this shorter session.

    Indeed. Thought so, too. Or maybe a chance to run that talk somewhere/sometime again? I could get a (larger) room @ AUT for that.

    "Dear Organizer. I noticed that you titled my talk "Confessions of a REST zealot." I am compelled to inform you that the proper spelling is ReST. How can I expect the proper audience to my lecture if the title is misleading? Only accurate representation and communication can we, as a species, continue to advance culturally, intellectually, and technically. Please restrain from hindering the advancement of civilization. Thank you, talios."

    As suggested by whartung on #rest ;-)
