Office Hour with Mike Amundsen

East Lounge (Table B)

You heard me talk about how to build Hypermedia Client applications, but what about designing and implementing Hypermedia Server APIs? And how do you start doing all this anyway? Can architects lead the charge? Should devs demand for hypermedia in implementation plans?

Let’s have a short convo about the pitfall and pleasures of bringing hypermedia into your current culture and helping all stakeholders see the benefits of a new design and implementation model for user-centric APIs.
