Evolving REST for an IoT World

Evolving REST for an IoT World

Friday, 10:40am - 11:30am

WebSocket is not just an interesting part of HTML5 for browsers. It opens up a brand new world for API developers that is just waiting to be leveraged. Instead of just request-reply, we have a set of all new interaction patterns that can be supported scaleably and compatibly. The Internet of Things is bringing with it more technical demand and more opportunity than we have ever seen.


The evolution of web APIs will need to keep pace. And WebSocket is poised to play a major role in helping REST evolve into this new world. In this session, we will: explore what the addition of WebSocket can do to the REST paradigm, see how Reactive Programming can be leveraged for making the tough stuff a lot easier than you think, and explore how event-driven architecture and loose coupling can be game changing for the emerging IoT world.
