Main Presentation: Consuming REST APIs, for all interpretations of REST There is a growing API economy.  Almost every software business is either starting to consume APIs or produce APIs for others to consume.When it comes to building APIs, REST has won the popularity contest, but from a technical perspective the term has little meaning.  Everyone has their own definition.This talk will discuss how to efficiently consume an API whether it is the simplest list of HTTP endpoints with JSON payloads, or hypermedia driven using bleeding edge, content negotiated, media types.We will talk about how to build re-usable and resilient client code that can insulate your client application from the dreaded V2 API.You will hear lots of practical guidance and insight that is not commonly discussed.  Whether you are new to REST or an experienced practitioner,  I believe you will leave this talk with some fresh perspectives on the subject. Darrel Miller Darrel is an API Evangelist for Microsoft working for the API Management team.  He has been building distributed business applications on the Microsoft platform for more than 20 years. He is an active member of the .NET community and OSS contributor.  When he’s not reading IETF specifications in order to answer Stack Overflow questions, or writing tooling to help people build hypermedia driven client applications, you will find him enjoying time with his wife and daughter in Montreal, Quebec. Darrel was a member of the Microsoft Web API advisory board, an Azure Advisor, a Microsoft Integration MVP and co-authored the O'Reilly book, Designing Evolvable Web APIs with ASP.NET.
