Herding Code 76: John Sheehan on RestSharp

This week on Herding Code, John Sheehan joins the cast for a conversation about his open source project, RestSharp. The gang dives into REST and .NET open source. Makes sense, right? And the show wraps with talk of OData and a MIX10-inspired Lightning Round.

  • John talks about his exciting new evangelist job at Twilio. Twillo provides a web-service API for businesses to build scalable, reliable communication apps. Wait! The evangelist is going to tell you all about it.
  • The guys quiz John about RestSharp. John talks about what RestSharp has to offer and the direction of the project. 
  • The gangs talk about the oddities of .NET open source project development – forking, closing source, project naming, boredom and a plea for project takeover.
  • Jon leads the group into dangerous territory and forces an OData discussion. Is OData good? Is it REST?  Hear what the guys have to say. 
  • K Scott dazzles us with a power-packed Lightning Round.  Don’t step away for a second or you’ll miss it!  Just like lightning.
  • John kicks off our first Official Pimp Your Stuff segment talking about ManagedAssembly – a community for .NET developers which is poised to be taken over.  Just ask.  Please.

    Whoever said banana … hilarious.

    Great podcast. I don’t think you guys have had a REST guy on … maybe have a dedicated podcast around that topic.

    Hammock is not a port of RestSharp as is mentioned in the podcast, it’s our own solution to the same problem, but due to timing and completeness and shipping products, we needed it shipped sooner rather than later.

    I thought we said that Hammock was extracted from TweetSharp, not a port of RestSharp. Apologies if we said it wrong.

    Correction: Hammock is not a fork of RestSharp.

    I think KdoeREST API works like charm.
    KdoeREST API supports PDFs, Images and vidoes.
