Enterprise Web Conf: WOI, REST, and Mashups in New York Oct 28 & London Oct 30

by Floyd Marinescu on Sep 12, 2008 |
As the Web becomes an increasingly important influence on the enterprise, we're beginning to see Web technologies seep into systems architecture and thinking.  Some early adopters are thinking about RESTful techniques to deliver enterprise-class distributed systems. At the same time, the confluence of public web services, cloud computing, and software as a service (SaaS) is enabling a new development model of "enterprise mashups" where these all come together.   InfoQ and ProgrammableWeb.com have teamed up to bring you a one-day conference covering the emerging theory and practices of this new 'Enterprise Web'.  The event will be in New York on October 28th and London on October 30th.

The Enterprise Web is a one day conference consisting of two tracks. The REST track is led by ThoughtWorks Global Head of Architecture Jim Webber and the Mashup track is led by ProgrammableWeb.com Founder John Musser. The speakers this year include:

The sessions are almost identical across both events, and consist of some of the following:

Enterprise Mashups Deep Dive
Get the whole picture on enterprise mashups from high-level architecture to best practices, tools and techniques

Intro to REST via Atom and AtomPub
Covers the basics of REST - the reasoning behind HTTP and it's scalability based on those principles, with examples from RESTful and non-RESTful protocols.

Open APIs
This session looks at the landscape of open APIs, who are the leading providers, what are the technology trends, and how do these fit within an enterprise context.

Starbucks
Explores the fundamental REST concepts and show how they can be used to create robust integration solutions - with all those - ilities that we love, but without all the complex middleware.

Mashup Patterns
Based on the upcoming book "Mashup Patterns" from Addison Wesley, this session will look at the spectrum of the essential mashup patterns and anti-patterns.

REST and the rest of the internet
Combine REST with other architectural styles, over a combination of transports for improving internet service integration efficiency.

Mashup Security
Key security and governance issues around mashups, best practices and the latest tools and trends.

REST, Erlang and YAWS, by Steve Vinoski
This talk covers how to use Erlang to implement reliable, highly- concurrent HTTP-based services using the Yaws web server.

REST Overview
A few basic techniques that work to publish a huge variety of objects to the web.

RESTful Design: Patterns and Anti-Pattern
Liss the most common patterns and anti-patterns of applying REST design principles, covering issues such as the (un)importance of URI design, resources vs. representations, and the role of hypermedia.

AtomPub
Discusses how a large telecommunications company has developed RESTful and Web-friendly services side-by-side with more traditional WS-* services.

Registration is $419 for the New York event and £299 for the London event, until September 30th (prices increase to $495, and £350 afterwards).
