Building Adaptable Web API Clients from the Ground Up

schedule Dec 6th 09:00 AM - 05:00 PM place Cliftons Sydney 3 add_circle_outline Notify

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.

Based on Amundsen's 2017 book "RESTful Web Clients", workshop attendees will use HTML, Javascript, and CSS to create simple, adaptable browser-based client apps that can "talk" to compatible servers, even ones that client app never "met" before.

This session offers valuable lessons and advice for front end developers, API service providers, and software architects.
