Eventbrite - REST Fest 2014

REST Fest Wiki And Other News

Ok, RESTFEst is about a month away and things are in full swing.  Here's a quick update for everyone and some "things to do" for us all.


Sean Cribbs is our keynote on Friday -- it's gonna be awesome. You can check out his talk stuff here: http://www.restfest.org/speakers and follow Sean on twitter here: https://twitter.com/seancribbs


We're having the event again this year at OpenWorks downtown. It's a great space and has lots of open areas where you can have "hallway talks" and just hang out.


ok, the Wiki has been posted and now we need to you help build it up.  Add your travel plans, any Food suggestions/restrictions, and -- most importantly -- your profile page. Since RESTFest is all about "Everybody Talks" that means everyone need to post at least one talk proposal on their profile page. You can check out my profile as a model to start. Yes, I know i don't have talks posted yet. Got me, eh?


Each year we have room for several "featured" or "extended" talks (30-60mins). If you want to propose a featured talk, mark that on your Wiki page. We select featured talks about a week or so before the event and will ping you when we build the schedule.


Are you working with a cool library, framework, or tool? Did you create one? STACKDAY (friday AM) is a chance to show it off. Talks are usually 30 mins but can be shorter. Post your idea to the StackDay page and we'll schedule you in.


In past years, we've had a theme for HackDay and usually had a single primary "leader" for the day. We're still open for ideas on this -- nothing is final. Last year Mogsie did a fantastic session where we built bots that worked together. In 2012 David Zuelke ran a great session on everyone using a single media type to build co-operative apps. Anyway, if you have an idea for hack day, post it to the HackDay page and let's see what transpires.


Add your travel details to the wiki so we all know when you'll come in and where you are staying. If you can, share rides to/from the airport and from the hotel to the venue. That can cut dowen on gas, parking hassles, and add to the fun.

OK, that's a start.

  1. create your profile
  2. add your talks
  3. add you travel details
  4. get packed for RESTFest


What is REST Fest?

REST Fest is an unconference developed by Mike Amundsen and Benjamin Young.

Our objective is to give people interested in REST, Hypermedia APIs, crafting web service APIs, or any related topics a chance to get together in an informal setting to share ideas, trade stories, and show examples of current work.
