RESTful web services are one of our core design patterns. Roy Fielding’s thesis identifies four major constraints that identify a RESTful architecture (statelessness, resource-orientation, uniform interface, hypermedia-driven application state). Many “RESTful” APIs only get 3 out of 4 of these; we’ve begun experimenting with using XHTML as a media type for our APIs (instead of the more traditional JSON or Atom types), and this provides a lot of power in terms of scalability and loose coupling between client and server. I can go over these concepts and perhaps even do some coding-on-the-fly to demonstrate some of these client and server concepts.

Comcast is one of the United States' leading providers of entertainment, information and communication products and services to residential and commercial customers. In this talk we'll cover some of the dynamics that are driving a large enterprise to look at technologies to supplement the good old RDBMS; for us, "NoSQL" is definitely "Not Only SQL." We'll also talk about some of the main criteria we use when evaluating projects and companies in the NoSQL space.
