About this event

For this one, Kalin Maldzhanski suggested the following topic:

We all use data sources in our apps, most of it coming from "APIs" we mostly wrongly call REST. We create data models and we use Retrofit, Volley or even the new Store from NYTimes. We all use HTTP, but we actually use just the Transfer Protocol (TP) part of it.

In this meetup, we will discuss what HTTP actually is, what is REST, Semantic Web, and this idea of Linked Open Data (LOD). We will also discuss when is it useful and how can we use REST and LOD (tools and practices).

Agenda :
* 18:00 - Welcome
* 18:30 - Kalin will present the topic
* 19:30 - Discussion
* 20:30 - Networking
* 22:00 - The End

So join us and invite your friend.

As usual full first and last name please, thanks :)

Hope to see you there in numbers!

Cheers,
Yannick
