Topic: Contract-First REST Development

For many REST developers, API design and implementation is an iterative process taking place mostly in code: a rough idea of the API is mentally sketched out, and some code is written; API tweaks are made, and the code is changed; repeat ad nauseam. While this can and does work, it’s not always the most efficient, as design details can be lost in all the code.


Due to a continuing lack of sponsorship for the remainder of 2014 and delays in getting some sponsorship money that is owed, there will be no food or giveaway at this month’s meeting. If you want to sponsor in the future then please contact Brent Wilkins ( or or 405.650.7467).

Thanks to Chad Gorshing and Nuisto we will be having pizza and pop for the meeting today.
