Session: Webmachine: Focus on Resources

Thursday, 13:10 - 14:00
Track: Web development

Webmachine is a system for easily and declaratively building well-behaved HTTP applications in Erlang. It is based on a very different execution model than most web frameworks, making it easy to focus on writing the core of your application while also helping you do the harder parts of HTTP right.  We will discuss Webmachine's unusual Web programming model, contrast it with prevailing notions in web frameworks, and demonstrate how to quickly build and extend RESTful web applications in Erlang.
