Keynote: Coarse-grained APIs and Our Declarative Future – Nate Loomis, Wells Fargo
The Semantic Web is a promise of greatness to come, where the users converse in functional terms and the architecture delivers in technical ones. Today, its a service offering and orchestration. The services have specific contracts necessary to perform their function. However, with Puppet, you can start to model that business function; moving from a node view to an application view and ultimately to a view of business function delivered rapidly to different destinations. For this, the model must be declarative; human and machine readable. It must be extensible; not arcane. Services must throw away their specific contracts and accept a coarse-grained data structure. Only then can the services evolve. Only then will IT be able to respond to the business on their terms.
