Presentation: Road to REST

Track: Distributed Systems / REST / Time: Wednesday 13:20 - 14:10 / Location: Fleming Room

Building REST API's for distributed applications is becoming more and more popular. But, there is one thing that most developers miss, which is the HATEOAS requirement, i.e. linking. This session will explain how exposing use-cases brings a natural solution to this problem, and how this will simplify both API development, documentation, as well as client development.
