“…no app is an island” – James Utzachneider, Microsoft, 1998
That comment was originally made in the context of building business solutions by integrating various applications into more complex systems. Within the last few years, we’ve seen that concept explode through the walls. The complexity is no longer dealing with applications within an organization. It has moved externally – integrating with other organizations and customers through the proliferation of mobile devices – the current “hot” frontier. The API is the enabling technology. The API allows the mobile client to not be “an island.” This session will be about Hypermedia and how we can use this core component of the web to make our APIs better.
