  • EUC 2014 – Loïc Hoguin – The Last REST Client You Will Ever Need
    2014-07-23 Erlang Central

    Videos



    People never seem to realize that writing a RESTful service -as opposed to a REST-like service like you see everywhere- pretty much lets them avoid writing a client and updating said client when the API changes. This is what this talk is about. We will start by discussing REST a little, summarize what really matters at the API level, and discuss how we can end up writing a single generic client that will work across all versions of all our REST services. At the end of the talk I will pr ...

    Videos



    Google has been providing webservices and APIs for over a decade, and the latest generation of these services is engineered around discoverability, REST, and JSON. In this talk we'll look at the architectural decisions that have lead us to this point, and at how to consumer and work with these APIS from Erlang, working with OAuth2 and JSON. Talk objectives: The aim is to show consuming modern web APIs with Erlang, and to discuss the architectural principles and challenges that have lead us to ...

  • Building Real World REST APIs w/Erlang
    2012-07-28 Erlang Central

    Videos



    Let's talk about how to build real-world REST APIs with Erlang. Not examples or "hello, world" demos but APIs that will hold up under sustained use in production. During our time together I'll talk about my experiences writing production RESTful servers in Erlang. I'll introduce webmachine, a great REST toolkit, and show you how to use it for maximum benefit. We'll also look at how to use parse transforms to dramatically reduce the inevitable boiler plate code associated with most large proje ...

    2012-03-26 Erlang Central

    Videos



    Today's applications are often web applications. And the ones who aren't usually include not only an HTTP server, but a complex interface to access all the components of the underlying application. All this in realtime. Farwest is a new web development platform that allows you to painlessly build realtime web applications. It is designed to allow a clean separation of concerns, allowing an Erlang developer to only worry on the backend, and a frontend developer to never have to look at Erlan ...

  • Lower barriers to entry with a REST architecture
    2011-03-21 Erlang Central

    Videos



    Even if Erlang technical relevance has been proven on large scale applications, the choice can still be questioned when you want to create an open source community. Indeed, while Erlang community is still expanding, as of now it remains small compared to mainstream languages. U.C.Engine core is an open source persistent publish / suscribe server written in Erlang. It allows you to build real time collaboration applications... Even if you don't know how to code in Erlang. In this presentati ...
