Speaker: Ross Tuck

Ross Tuck is a senior developer and team lead at Ibuildings in the Netherlands, despite being American. He's currently obsessed with hypermedia, CQRS and vector graphics but this tends to change quickly. Otherwise, he's usually trying to make time to read.

Talk: "HTTP and Your Angry Dog"
What is an etag, exactly? What's all that stuff in the Accept header? And what the heck does a Vary header do anyways?! Web developers use HTTP everyday but most of us don't know how to get the most out of it. This talk goes past memorizing status codes (although we'll see those too) and teaches how to get the most out of every request and response

We got some awesome stuff to give away this month, so make sure you CHECK IN once you arrive at the meetup if you want a shot at getting it!

That was an excellent talk! I had been worried we'd get another talk about REST (yawn) and was not just relieved that this talk covered other ground but that it was so interesting and inspiring. And that in an area we all just take for granted. After this talk I feel inspired to go back and redesign some APIs.Thanks, Ross!
