Presentation: "Getting Things Done with REST"

Track: REST Architectures / Time: Friday 12:05 - 13:05 / Location: Room 102/103

REST's hypermedia constraint is all about getting things done - that is, making changes to the state of an application to achieve a particular goal. Put simply, in a web-based hypermedia system, clients apply HTTP's uniform interface to operate links and forms in pursuit of their application goals.

Using Microsoft's new WCF HTTP APIs, in this session I'll discuss the implementation of machine-to-machine interactions in a hypermedia-driven distributed system. I'll look at how we can develop and test discrete parts of a workflow, and build clients that can be guided on the fly to complete their application goals.
