Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That! - Building an API With Loopback

A session at Boise Code Camp 2016

Saturday 19th March, 2016

4:30pm to 5:45pm (MST)

Session Level: 200

Building software is hard. Building an API is harder. Building an API that works is even harder than that. On top of that, humans are really bad at design. Software developers are even worse and need all the help they can get. Enter Loopback.

Loopback is a framework that allows you to quickly scaffold complete REST APIs. And easily define relationships between models. And not care whether you're building on top of MySQL or MongoDB. And customize the endpoints. And set static, dynamic, or custom access controls on each endpoint. And automatically document every endpoint. And generate client SDKs to consume your API. You get the point. Loopback is the REST API tool that "sucks less".

Nathan Norton

Full Stack Developer at Pixel and Line bio from LinkedIn

Nathan Norton is the lead backend web developer at Pixel and Line. He has 10 years of professional software development and database admin experience, which is a fancy way of saying he has written and deployed bugs relentlessly for 10 years, and has a serious knack for taking down servers by pushing code.

His primary vehicle for chaos has been the Laravel framework, which he finds to be a shining light in the dark realm of PHP, but he recently discovered just how more quickly and brutally he can wreak havoc with Node.js.

Nathan doesn't have a preference when it comes to tabs or spaces, but strongly despises a careless mixture of both, and he applies that philosophy holistically to all areas of software development.
