  • Giving Spring some REST - by Spring in Action author Craig Walls
    NOTE: This talk will be given in person thanks to generous sponsorship of travel accommodations provided by NoFluff Just Stuff!
    In modern applications, there are a diverse array of clients consuming content from the web. Each of these clients has unique capabilities and limitations, therefore demanding presentation of the application to be tailored to each device. As a result, presentation logic is often pushed into the client itself, leaving the application to serve a common data-oriented lightweight API to be consumed by each client.
    In this presentation, we'll see how Spring is well-suited for developing that lightweight API, employing the RESTful features of Spring MVC. We'll also look at how to secure those APIs using Spring Security for OAuth and how to create self-describing REST APIs using Spring HATEOAS.
    Craig Walls is a senior engineer with Pivotal as the Spring Social project lead and is the author of Spring in Action. He's a zealous promoter of the Spring Framework, speaking frequently at local user groups and conferences and writing about Spring. When he's not slinging code, Craig spends as much time as he can with his wife, two daughters, 2 birds and 3 dogs.
    • 6 - 7pm - Social Hour with Pizza provided by Cerner
