Eventbrite - REST Fest 2014

Hypermedia API "bake off!"

For the Hack Day (Thursday) this year, we're doing a good ole fashioned Hypermedia API "bake off."

The Bake Off will work in a similar fashion to a chili cook off or cake bake off you may have been to before...but with less mess! :smile:

The primary objective is "tasting" all these various approaches to building the same thing in different "flavors." Because of that a non-goal is making sure these API's all work together. As such, there's no requirement to share media types, URL design, etc. However, building the "full stack" (server, client, and/or some basic documentation) for your "flavor" of choice is ideal.

Attendees will bring their best Hypermedia API skills and group-up (or "cook" solo) to present their best variation on the spec below.

NOTE: This is a work in progress, so please contribute at the wiki!

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.
