Making RESTful Android Restful

URL: http://colintheshots.com/blog,

A new stack of Android networking libraries can make interacting with a REST API server easy.

Having spoken about many different solutions recently at MN DevFest 2014, I will showcase a particular networking solution using Octo’s Robospice and Square’s Retrofit and OkHTTP.

Step-by-step, we will build up a simple, open source application using real world data. The session is aimed at both Android and Java developers, both experienced and aspiring.

There will be code.

See the advantages of using libraries to reduce the complexity of REST, SPDY, caching, and threading on an Android device.
