CTO Tuesdays #19: Using URNs to avoid hard-coding service locations

April 7th, 2010 by Alex

Attached to this post are the recordings of CTO Tuesdays #19 for 6 April 2010.

In this very interesting episode, Michael Rowley covers the (somewhat sad) history of URNs (complete with a screen shot of the entire web, circa 1991). Rowley then details how and why URNs are useful in process applications. A panel discussion follows the formal presentation.

Next week on CTOT: Rowley completes the story arc he started on CTOT #18 (using email-based approvals for processes) and which continued in CTOT #19 with a discussion of REST — the representational state transfer protocol. Don’t miss it: register at http://www.activevos.com/ctot.
