  • Secure RESTful API Automation with JavaScript
  • Time: Tuesday @ 1:30pm | Room E-130

Pragmatic RESTful API principles, along with a solid consumption architecture, can allow for a great amount of automation in your program development. At the same time, securing the application can be extremely tricky from JavaScript.

In this session we will explore several principles behind RESTful API design and consumption using JavaScript, many of the standards that were integrated in the redevelopment of the PayPal API architecture in the new RESTful APIs.

We will cover many of these architecture standards, including:

  • Building in action automation using HATEOAS
  • OAuth 2 in the JavaScript model
  • The challenges behind secure resource consumption through JavaScript
