March 8th 2010: Developing headless web applications

The next WYLUG meeting is on Monday the 8th of March 2010 at Old Broadcasting House.

This month we have a talk from Tim Nash – Developing headless web applications.

Who needs or want humans to get in the way of your applications on the web, more and more systems are moving to headless web service applications, be it checking the latest exchange rates, or sending information about an order to a third party for processing web services should be the cornerstone. Many people have been tortured by SOAP based web services fear not the solution is here with REST based applications, this talk will look at developing REST applications, backend deployment on linux systems use of Memcache, queueing systems like beanstalkd and how you can have it all up and running in under an hour or so.

The talk will start at 7:00pm, but the room will be open for coffee, tea and chat from 6:30pm. Afterwards, we usually go to The Fenton pub, across the road from OBH, for more geeky chatter.
