Creating an Epic RESTful API and Conquering the World


Comments are closed.

The speaker was very nervous through the first half and it was hard to follow him due to shaking voice. The speaker is knowledgeable and seems to have much experience. I appreciate that he touched on security and other related topics.

A very good presentation. Json vs JsonP would have been better explained with examples of the output. But I learned some very useful things and am glad I attended!

Andrew obviously knew his stuff, but the tlk suffered because he tried to present too much information in a sort talk. The talk was also described as a talk on how to build a restful interface but it really didn't go there. The talk started with an example API (creating a URL shortener) but that example was never followed through on.

I would have much rather seen a very broad talk on the steps to building an API with less information on the details of http return codes, etc.

Given all that o'm now glad I know about Andrew and will likely explore his books as I deepen my learning.

Very pleasurable talk. The speaker was very knowledgeable. The title was slightly off, it was more geared towards "things to keep in mind when building a RESTful API" but otherwise, I took away a lot of great information and things I hadn't thought about with my previous apps using REST.

The speaker suffered through a scorching room and was bombarded with questions and still held together pretty well. Kudos from me!

This was a very informative talk and you could tell the speaker was very knowledgeable about RESTful API development.

It was a hot topic!

Good overview of RESTful basics.

I enjoyed this great overview for how to create a RESTful API!

Great presentation!

This topic was obviously a hit. I was not able to sit in the room for it and so missed much of what was clearly and excellent talk and topic.

I rated this four stars (not quite five) because I agree with billperegoy. I expected to have more about how to build a restful interface, but the talk really didn't go there. The talk was still a good talk, but I would have liked to have the steps to creating an API with PHP.

Maybe Andrew would consider doing a Meetup night to talk about the steps he'd take to create an API for the source code of the conference web application that he developed for thise Northeast PHP conference.
