Building Adaptable Web API Clients from the Ground Up
In a series of simple review and refactoring, you’ll learn how to move specific knowledge of 1) addresses, 2) inputs, and 3) workflow out of the client app and place it into the messages passed between servers and clients. As a result, you’ll have a more robust, adaptable, and resilient client that will reduce the need to versioning and repeated redeployment.
This session offers valuable lessons and advice for front end developers, API service providers, and software architects.
Attendees will learn how to create simple, adaptable browser-based client apps that can "talk" to compatible servers.
Software engineers, architects, technical leaders and anyone interested in building evolvable APIs for the web.
