Presentation from the developer track at I Love APIs London 2016 featuring Tom Christie, DabApps.
What problems are we running into building Web APIs today? How is the API landscape changing, and how can we build systems that communicate in more meaningful and robust ways?
* REST - Taking a look at the pain points today.
* API schemas - What they are and why they're valuable.
* Hypermedia - Why it hasn't yet fully lived up to its promises, and how it still might.
* Realtime - Can we build realtime interfaces in a more structured way?
This presentation takes a practical look at combining the best of REST, Hypermedia, and Realtime and demonstrates how to build self-describing APIs, how to use generic client libraries to communicate with these interfaces, and how to extend this to building interactive realtime services.
