Open Rasta presentation, or “How to throw a rest into the mix”

I’m imagining the thought process of some of the session voters for the upcoming Mix conference. “Hey, here’s one on Open Rasta by the Coding Hillbilly. You know what would be funny? Let’s all vote for it even though he just submitted it on a lark to get some practice after taking time out from speaking engagements. It’ll be fun watching him explain to Mrs. Billy that he *has* to go to Vegas four weeks before he’s heading to Philadelphia for Udi Dahan’s course.”

Yeah, you’re all a bunch o’ comedians, ain’t ya. Well, I’ll show you. You’ll go to my Open Rasta session ready to watch me squirm and you’ll see no such thing. I don’t want to overhype it or anything but I can tell you without a doubt that this session is going to restore your virginity and then take it from you again. Savagely (but tastefully; last thing I need is a bunch of people accusing me of statutory rape in the middle of a presentation). Then maybe next time you’ll think twice before crossing a coder of the earth, woncha!

Couple of interesting tidbits on the session:

  • Somewhere along the line, the original title got changed. I submitted it with: “Open Rasta: The REST framework MVC wants to be.”
  • I also submitted a session on S#arp Architecture. (What can I say? I’m a web framework kinda guy.) I found it interesting that the Open Rasta one got chosen and the #arch one didn’t.

So while you’re waiting for Mix, have a gander at Open Rasta to see what all the hubbub is about. Between this and my new contract using Google Web Toolkit, that should set the stage for my post activity for the next few months.

    I agree with Richard, though I think FubuMVC will give it a run for its money simply b/c of its more “familiar” MVC arch.

    All OR needs is a RestClient implementation … or you could use any of the existing ones in Ruby or JavaScript.

    Good stuff Kyle. IMO OpenRasta = the next big thing for ALT.NETters :)
