I enjoyed being a part of the code4lib 2010 conference in Asheville
this past February, and wanted to return the favor by inviting you all
to come to an event I'm organizing in Greenville, SC.
REST Fest 2010 and Hypermedia Workshop
Friday, September 17, 2010 at 8:00 AM - Saturday, September 18, 2010 at
6:00 PM (ET) Greenville, SC
Co-Chairs: Mike Amundsen & Benjamin Young
REST Fest 2010 (Sep 17th & 18th)
REST Fest is a community unconference event focused on the REST
architectural style and implementations. This year, REST Fest will
encourage developers who have direct experience building RESTful
applications for the World Wide Web to share their successes and their
frustrations in an informal atmosphere. REST Fest will also maintain a
"Hack Room" open throughout the two-day event where attendees can get
together and work on any project they like.
Call for Presenters
In the spirit of the "Unconference" model, all talks are automatically
accepted as a "Lightning Talk" (Five Slides in Five Minutes). Presenters
are encouraged to submit a title, short abstract (250 or less), and an
indication of the "level" of the talk (beginner, intermediate,
advanced). "How To..." talks are encouraged as well as "How Do I?"
talks. A small number of talks will be chosen as "Selected Talks" with a
format of 30+ minutes. Break out sessions will be added as desired by
Workshop: Hypermedia Hacking with Mike Amundsen (Sep 17th)
In this one-day pre-event workshop, attendees will learn how to
implement an alternative to one-off Web APIs using Hypermedia Engines.
The all-day session includes a mix of presentation, discussion, and
hands-on implementation. Attendees are encouraged to bring laptops and
"code-along" with supplied examples throughout the day.
Thanks for reading, and I hope to see you there,
