I gave a little chat last night at the Central Virginia Ruby Enthusiast’s Group – otherwise known as the Richmond Ruby Brigade – about REST, ActiveResource and how to build client services from the marriage of the two.
It was a really good group and I’d encourage anybody in the central virginia area to go check them out if they get the chance. It sounds like they’ve got some good speakers lined up in the next few meetings to make it worth your while (and they had free pizza last night – what a grade-A operation!)
For those that are interested, here’s the PDF version of my presentation. As you can imagine much of the value is lost without having the dialogue to accompany the presentation, but I think it somewhat stands on its own. Most of the examples are drawn from my ongoing work on ContactsAPI – a site meant to further the adoption and education of ActiveResource and REST in general. Check it out if you have the time, but again, it’s a work in progress.
