At NDC-London, Carl and Richard moderated an amazing panel about Web API... panelists included Glenn Block, Darrel Miller, Pedro Felix, Christian Weyer, Dominick Baier and Daniel Roth. What's the future hold for Web API? Is it headed the way of WCF? Can anyone get a word in edgewise around Glenn Block? Some great questions from the audience toward the end of the show as well.
By day Glenn Block works at Splunk making it easier for developers to work with Big Data as he drives development of Splunk’s Dev platform. By night, Glenn is an active maintainer and contributor of several OSS projects including scriptcs (https://github.com/scriptcs/scriptcs). He is a polyglot with his most recent favorite language being node.js, and he is very passionate about Web API development. Glenn is a frequent speaker internationally on various topics that affect developers and a published OReilly author. You can find him tweeting as @gblock into the wee hours of the night.
