Seminar: Web Services for RPGers
Web services have taken the world of IT by storm. Many RPG shops are planning to utilize them either as a consumer, for example to track UPS shipments, or as a provider, to provide an alternative interface to existing application functionality.
In this seminar, Scott will provide an introduction to the world of web services, explaining how they work and demystifying some of the buzz-words like SOAP, REST, XML and WSDL.
After studying the basics of web services, you will learn how an RPG program can be used as a web service. The seminar will also explore how web services can be accessed (or "consumed") by an RPG program utilizing Scott's free HTTPAPI tool. The session provides code examples of the functions discussed.
Length: 4.5 hrs (including breaks)
