What is a hypermedia API? Why are they locked, why should they be unlocked, and how to unlock them? How can a generic client be intelligent, and why would we want one anyway? Can’t we just let the engineers worry about this stuff?

In this talk we will explore the concept of a hypermedia API, and why it can be considered locked. We will briefly discuss design guidelines, and the problems they solve. We will then explore generic clients, and how they benefit an application and the industry. How to make a generic client intelligent and how this will allow non-technical team members to directly contribute within the hypermedia API space. We will discover why the use of hypermedia APIs enables organizations of any size to be able to innovate at a higher pace while engaging a wider range of employee talent.

Does this all seem too good to be true? It isn’t. We will go through live examples of this process in action revealing a glimpse of the future of our hAPI industry.
