February 9 Meeting

Best Practices for Building a JSON API with Rails 5

  • The JSON API spec
  • Pagination
  • Versioning

Don’t worry – it’s okay if you missed the original talk; we’re gonna be building an API from the ground up so everyone will be on the same page. The whole talk will be live-coding with Rails 5; however, if you’re unfamiliar with Rails (or even Ruby in general), the concepts we’ll be covering are all language and framework agnostic, and you can apply them to any JSON API you build in any language.

This talk is part 1 of a 2-part series, and this talk helps set the stage for the next talk in March (where we’ll tie this API up with Docker). You won’t want to miss it!
