EUC 2014 – Loïc Hoguin – The Last REST Client You Will Ever Need

By Erlang Central | Published: July 23, 2014

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 present a series of tools and guidelines that make all this not only possible but also very easy, including the last REST client that you will ever need.
