Making a comprehensive (and performant) API for your application can be really challenging, especially without ending up rewriting large parts of what you already have, or being overly dependent on the original application.
This talk will go through some great new techniques for creating a separate service which exposes the data layer of your application for both:
Splitting parts of your application out into services can be an amazing win for easy scale, and for developer sanity – and it doesn’t have to be nearly as hard as it seems.
While most of the talk will focus on techniques and best practices, I will also be announcing the release of a set of libraries for building and working with APIs – and tying them into an existing Rails application with zero to minimal effort.
I’m very excited about the impact that this talk will have on how we develop and view services, and I truly believe my talk is a must-see for anyone looking to scale their application in pieces beyond normal limits.
