Subject REST Fest 2010
Date Thu, 05 Aug 2010 20:41:02 GMT
  I realize this my fall too close to CouchCamp for many of you, but 
those of you who can't make CouchCamp or just want more REST, I'd love 
to have you join me at REST Fest 2010. There will be "hack rooms" setup 
throughout the event, and we'd love to have devs from any of the CouchDB 
client libraries there to hack and present their libraries and ideas.

REST Fest 2010 and Hypermedia Workshop

Friday, September 17, 2010 at 8:00 AM - Saturday, September 18, 2010 at 
6:00 PM (ET) Greenville, SC

Co-Chairs: Mike Amundsen & Benjamin Young
REST Fest 2010 (Sep 17th & 18th)

REST Fest is a community unconference event focused on the REST 
architectural style and implementations. This year, REST Fest will 
encourage developers who have direct experience building RESTful 
applications for the World Wide Web to share their successes and their 
frustrations in an informal atmosphere. REST Fest will also maintain a 
"Hack Room" open throughout the two-day event where attendees can get 
together and work on any project they like.

Call for Presenters

In the spirit of the "Unconference" model, all talks are automatically 
accepted as a "Lightning Talk" (Five Slides in Five Minutes). Presenters 
are encouraged to submit a title, short abstract (250 or less), and an 
indication of the "level" of the talk (beginner, intermediate, 
advanced). "How To..." talks are encouraged as well as "How Do I?" 
talks. A small number of talks will be chosen as "Selected Talks" with a 
format of 30+ minutes. Break out sessions will be added as desired by 
the attendees.

Workshop: Hypermedia Hacking with Mike Amundsen (Sep 17th)

In this one-day pre-event workshop, attendees will learn how to 
implement an alternative to one-off Web APIs using Hypermedia Engines. 
The all-day session includes a mix of presentation, discussion, and 
hands-on implementation. Attendees are encouraged to bring laptops and 
"code-along" with supplied examples throughout the day.

Thanks for reading, and I hope to see you there,
