Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse of Connected Devices

A session at Copenhagen Ruby Brigade, December 2012

..or "Combining HTML Hypermedia APIs and Adaptive Web Design".

HTML is the lowest common denominator in a world where the number of
connected devices are steadily growing. In such a world, our API
should be hypermedia driven and we should consider choosing HTML as
the media type for our APIs. If we choose this, we can enhance the API
with CSS and JavaScript, making the API human-friendly as well.
Further, we can use Adaptive Web Design to make the best possible
experience for all types of browsers and devices.

This kind of solution has some risks and technical issues related to
it though. And it is not a silver bullet (silver bullets don't kill
zombies anyway).
