Hypermedia should be as easy as building any other modern API. It should work with your existing tools and processes while giving you the benefits of hypermedia like evolvability, scalability, and discoverability. It should be easy to understand, design, implement, and consume. It should leverage existing standards like OpenAPI and JSON-LD. However, this is generally not true of our modern hypermedia landscape.

What if we made hypermedia easier? What if we started applying hypermedia with the simple rule of "just add links?" This is what RESTful JSON aims to do. RESTful JSON is a minimal and pragmatic API design pattern for adding links to JSON in order to build expressive and evolvable APIs. In this talk, Stephen will explain what RESTful JSON is and share stories of how it has helped people attain the benefits of hypermedia using common practices.
