Forward Leaning Software Engineer

The surge of interest in the REpresentational State Transfer (REST) architectural style, the Semantic Web, and Linked Data has resulted in the development of innovative, flexible, and powerful systems that embrace one or more of these compatible technologies. However, most developers, architects, Information Technology managers, and platform owners have only been exposed to the basics of resource-oriented architectures.

This talk, based upon Brian Sletten's book of the same name, is an attempt to catalog and elucidate several reusable solutions that have been seen in the wild in the now increasingly familiar “patterns” style. These are not turn key implementations, but rather, useful strategies for solving certain problems in the development of modern, resource-oriented systems, both on the public Web and within an organization's firewalls.
