Spring Mobile/Android guru Roy Clarkson and I are giving a talk at SpringOne this year. We will be mixing Spring Data with RESTful APIs.
Roy and I have been working on a demo app that let’s you snap pictures and then upload them to a centralized web site through a simple RESTful API using hypermedia. The code to build the back end is über easy and lets you focus on the problem you’re trying to solve. On top of that, we’re building some functionality to then tweet your pic to all your friends.
Original idea, huh? (See video below for my inspiration!)
The focus of our talk is about the powerful role hypermedia plays in creating flexible APIs, and how Spring Data REST puts you in control of building multiple clients. We will have a desktop web site as well as a mobile UI. We are also plotting to release the app on Cloud Foundry so you can go around and take pics during the conference and tweet them to your friends and colleagues.
