Designing with capabilities

EN / День 3 / 19:00 / Трек 1

In this talk, Scott will look at an unusual approach to designing internal interfaces and external APIs — a "capability-based" approach that takes the Principle Of Least Authority and applies it to software design. When this approach is used, it produces a robust and modular design that captures the domain constraints, resulting in an API that is self-documenting and hard to misuse.

Scott will demonstrate how to design and implement a capability-based approach, how capabilities can be quickly combined and restricted easily, and how capabilities are a natural fit with a REST API that uses HATEOAS.
