Subject REST Fest 2010 and Hypermedia Workshop
Date Tue, 17 Aug 2010 19:09:04 GMT
  One of my favorite things about CouchDB is how well it does HTTP. If 
that's one of the things you love about CouchDB, then I'd love to have 
you join me at REST Fest this year:

If you're going to CouchCamp, just hop in a van (with several others) 
following the event and drive south east until you come to Greenville, SC.

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.
