Hyped for hyperfit
Chris DaMour, Sr. API Developer just spent last year moving their Commerce platform to a RESTful architecture, centered around the new Commerce Hyper API that drives the Mobile Native App experiences. A few interesting artifacts were created during this endeavor, some of which will be open-sourced in the coming months. One of these, Hyperfit, is a library designed for consuming the resources & hypermedia controls of RESTful applications as well as Hypermedia APIs inspired by Retrofit. The session will consist of two parts:

  • An overview on RESTful Application Architecture
  • Some coding with Hyperfit to consume & navigate a selection of Hypermedia APIs
