Restful Objects - A Hypermedia API For Domain Object Models

REST architectures are becoming increasingly more common, both on the internet and within the enterprise. In this talk, Dan will explain some of the ideas behind the spec, and will show how you can use it to REST-enable an app in a matter of minutes.

Dan is known as an advocate of the naked objects pattern, and is the lead committer to Apache Isis, a Java framework that implements the naked objects pattern. He also works (for a client) on an app that runs on top of Isis, called Estatio. You can find Estatio up on github; it also is open source.

Why do all my DDD applications look the same?

Alberto Brandolini has been helping different development teams exploring complicated domains to implement sophisticated application. But the more he explores very different domains, the more he has realised there’s more underlying commonalities that he hadn’t previously realised.
