REST Fest is just four weeks away!


"Everyone talks, everyone listens" at RESTFest. To make this work, we encourage everyone to add at least one (usually two) 5in5 talk proposals to their profile page (yes, you need a profile page!). Don't worry about details or complex descriptions, just post a title and short abstract so everyone can see what you're thinking about. I posted my first proposal here: https://github.com/RESTFest/2014-Greenville/wiki/Mike-Amundsen


We have about 25 ppl signed up for RESTFest 2014 -- cool.  We usually allow for as many as 50 ppl. Feel free to promote RESTFest on your social network and w/ friends.

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.
