Hypermedia at Scale - Ben Greenberg, Comcast

"Hypermedia APIs provide loose coupling between an API and its client, allowing the API to evolve without client changes. When operating a hypermedia-based service with heavy usage, this evolvability introduces opportunities to improve scalability, as well as adding some new challenges.

Using Comcast’s experiences with the Xfinity Stream app, we will discuss how to use hypermedia to shape traffic and calling patterns, how to perform load shedding if necessary, and how to introduce API changes when it can take days for new versions of a service to fully rollout to clients. Implications for both API services and clients are considered."
