November Meeting

In our November meeting, the topic will be REST!

Our speaker will be Marc Ypes, one of CakePHP’s core developers. He will guide us through the important parts of REST, like HTTP headers, caching, authentication and how we should handle them. We are also very excited to work together with this month’s host: Tweakers. Various members of their team have been active contributers to AmsterdamPHP and its great to finally visit their offices, they will of course be taking care of the food and beers!

20:30 – 20:45: Raffle
20:45: Social, drinks and food.

Speaker: Marc Ypes

Marc Ypes is a salesman of car parts. In his spare time he loves to contribute to open source PHP projects. He has been using PHP for 4 years as a hobby and became core developer of the CakePHP framework 1,5 years ago.

Talk: “Create a RESTful API”

REST was first described in 2000, but just recently started gaining popularity over SOAP and RPC-style api’s. This talk will go through the important parts of REST style API’s, including topics like HTTP headers, caching, authentication and more.


We got some awesome stuff to give away this month, so make sure you RSVP for the meetup if you’re coming and want a shot at getting it!

VENUE: Tweakers

Mt. Lincolnweg 40
1033 SN Amsterdam
Tweakers is on the other side of the IJ, in the NDSM Warf, so we recommend you take the ferry there, you have two options to get there:
Behind Central Station (map): take the left-most ferry (906)
At Tasmanstraat (map): take the left-most ferry (903)

Once you are on the other side, walk along the shore to the left until you find this building and that’s it!
