Everybody is predicting the near future growth in terms of numbers and of revenue generation of IoT devices and its related market, but how do we enable a more valuable scenario other than changing the thermostat temperature using a mobile app?

During this talk we will explore the next evolution phase, after the recent hype, of IoT and how this will be mainly propelled by API Specification.

We will start with what’s broken right now about the whole IoT ecosystem.

Then we will examine how REST APIs, REST API Model and REST API Specification can fix this situation.

We will specifically focus on one framework: the Web Things API.

We will see how the peculiar features of IoT devices and IoT communications are addressed by this framework and we will also digress into which “enhanced worlds” are possible with this model.

We will conclude with a short demo of using the framework in practice.
