Next meetup!

So much of the current discussion on REST is about developing server APIs.  However, without building clients specifically to participate in a RESTful system, many of the benefits of REST can be lost.  This talk will discuss the role of the client, whether a mobile app, a rich desktop client or a Javascript client inside a browser.

We will discuss how to build rich clients as components of a RESTful system to enable application developers to deliver high functioning clients that still benefit from the performance, scalability, fault tolerance and evolvability characteristics of web based systems.

With the specific focus of delivering rich clients on the Windows platform, we will discuss topics such as deployment, service discovery, bookmarking, authentication, links, link relations, media-types, versioning, window management, caching of static resources and localization.

We will include a demo of a running production application that implements many of the discussed topics. We will also walk through a sample application that demonstrates techniques that can be used to achieve these goals.
