If your API is intended to be used with mobile devices the problem's of latency, bandwidth uncertain connection state, multiple client versions and capabilities compound the problem. Hear how PlayUp has used hypermedia (ReST) to power and evolve it's applications on iOS, Android, Windows Phone and Windows 8. Hear a general overview of the principles that guide development, how the client and the server work, the 'oh I wish we hadn't done that moments' and take a tour of the document exchanges that power PlayUp's ticketing service.
