Call for Chapters on REST

August 12th, 2012  |  Published in book, call for papers, REST, SOA  |  Bookmark on

The following is excerpted from the full Call for Chapters on REST:

REST has gained popularity not only as a lightweight approach for Web Service development, but it also often used to denote a loosely coupled and Web-friendly approach to design Service-Oriented Architectures. In this book we gather contributions on applying REST beyond public Web services (e.g., in pervasive computing applications, cloud computing environments and integrated enterprise architectures) and on results of recent research studies for doing so. The goal is to go beyond the basic understanding of what REST is about as an architectural style and collect emerging and established design patterns to provide valuable guidance for the reader. The book will both give a clear, principled description of REST and show how it has made an impact in the state of the practice as well as provide an outlook on ongoing research advances. Readers will find a good starting point for making sense of REST, its design constraints, advantages and disadvantages, as well as a broad collection of novel practical application case studies where using REST has made a difference. The book is intended for service designers, information systems architects and anyone interested in learning the current state of research and application of the REST architectural style.

Please see the full call for details. I look forward to helping review your submissions for this book, especially from those of you focused on submitting interesting RESTful application case studies.

New Column: Wriaki

For the “Functional Web” column in the Jan/Feb 2012 issue of Internet Computing, I wrote about Wriaki, an Erlang sample application my Basho colleague Bryan Fink wrote that implements a wiki on top of Webmachine and Riak. Wriaki is a nice, clean, and easy to understand example of how to write Webmachine applications. Here’s the PDF.

Extended “Programmatic Web Interfaces” Submission Deadline

October 28th, 2011  |  Published in call for papers, HTTP, REST, services, web  |  Bookmark on

A number of folks planning to submit to our call for papers for “Programmatic Interfaces for Web Applications” requested an extension on the submission deadline, so we’ve decided to do just that, extending the deadline by a week from Nov. 1 to Nov. 8. We’re already expecting a pretty good number of submissions, and hopefully the extra week will allow for more submissions and submissions of extra high quality. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.

CfP: Programmatic Interfaces for Web Applications

August 11th, 2011  |  Published in call for papers, design, REST, web  |  Bookmark on

Tomas Vitvar, Cesare Pautasso, and I are co-editing an IEEE Internet Computing special issue on “Programmatic Interfaces for Web Applications.” See the full call for papers for details, but if you’re working on or have developed an app-to-app interface for your web application that you think is exemplary, please consider submitting an article about it. Submissions are due Nov. 1, but by Oct. 15 please email us a brief description of what you plan to submit.

WS-REST 2010 Program Online

The program for the First International Workshop on RESTful Design (WS-REST 2010) is now online. As a member of the program committee I helped review submissions, and the ones I read were generally of pretty good quality, so I’m confident this will turn out to be a worthwhile workshop.
