Tuesday August 26th, Max Technical Training in Mason, OH

August 26th, 6pm at our monthly CINNUG meeting, we welcome Mike Amundsen with a talk on Building a Generic Hypermedia API Client: From Start to Finish

Abstract: Hypermedia is the "new thing" for API design. But what is different about Hypermedia APIs? What does it take to write a client application that can take advantage of this new design model? Can you really build a generic hypermedia client that will work with more than one service API? If yes, how?

In this talk, Mike, Director of ARchitecture for the API Academy of CA / Layer 7 walks through the process of designing and implementing a generic hypermedia client based on the Collection+JSON format. Using lots of code and multiple Cj-compliant live services, you'll see what it takes to build a general-use hypermedia client that will work both now and in the future.

Immediately following the main speaker and pizza we will be holding another CINARC (Cincinnati Software Architecture Group). This session will feature more discussion on topics chosen the night of the meeting. The focus of the meeting will be to discuss issues of software architecture relevant to the members of the community.

Pizza and drinks will be provided by our sponsors.

On deck for the September 23rd is Edward Charbeneau with a presentation on Don't be a stereotype rapid prototype.

In this session, we will take a look at Gradle, the build tool of choice for Android Studio. We will explore how to create your projects and then create the build configurations for different environments.
