RESTful applications in practise @ JUG-Ka

This coming Wednesday Gregor Roth from 1&1, you might know him from his InfoQ article, is going to give a talk on RESTful applications at the Java User Group Karlsruhe.

He will show how to implement applications leveraging a RESTful architecture and point out the mismatch between a RESTful and RPC-style approach. Furthermore Gregor will highlight the difference between HTTP PUT and POST and finally demonstrate how to implement none CRUD operations using REST.

I'm really looking forward to this talk. In my spare time I developed the REST interface for an Android game and it's going to be interesting to see what we could have done better and hopefully what we've got right.

As usual, the talk will be held at University Karlsruhe in room 102, which is located in the basement. We'll start at 7:15pm, if the door opens as planned this time.

JetBrains and ZeroTurnaround are each giving away a free license of one of their products. If you are interested in participating in our monthly lottery, send me an email. The winners will be announced at the end of the talk. In addition to that, Atlassian sponsored a couple of great T-Shirts, which you can pick up at the end of the talk.
