I’ll be presenting at ValtechDays 2009 on November 17th a talk titled “Where are my Beans, Contracts and workflows? WOA and Rest: An enterprise mindset shift” with Sadek Drobi.
Here’s the summary :
“With the rise of web 2.0, Rest and Web Oriented Architecture emerged as inevitable solutions to today’s business challenges. However, to realize the benefits of this approach requires a comprehensive look at the whole model together with its composing technologies, design patterns and best practices. In this talk, we will go with you discovering this approach, highlighting its principal elements (standard Web technologies, linked data, Mashups…) helping you finding architecture values you care about in a dynamic, extremely extensible model, hoping you get an “AHA!” moment by the end of the day.”
For once, the slides are already done, we have done one “perfection game” and will do another one at Vidal sometimes before the 17th.
We will demo some cool mashups during this talk, especially one integrating some REST and WOA stuff with GoogleWave.
The talk will be in French, you’ll find the summary in French on valtech days page.
Sadek has opened a couple of public Google Waves on the subject, in English and French, feel free to join us overthere.
