Implementing Hypermedia Clients: It's Not Rocket Science
From learndat Learning Design & Technology on July 16th, 2013
While it's true that Hypermedia APIs are getting traction in some circles, not much has been said about how this affects client coding. Common thinking is that client coding for hypermedia is either a) unreasonably hard or, b) results in ugly UI/UX that harkens back to the days of early browsers sporting Marquee and Blink tags. Coding hypermedia clients need not be ugly nor complicated. This session shows you how to write clean, adaptive code that responds to changes in data and workflow requirements over time. This session covers the truth (both good and bad) about hypermedia client coding and includes examples of several client models that handle evolvable Hypermedia APIs without sacrificing user experience or requiring Herculean effort on the part of developers.
