Webmontag #59

Every month, Webmontag Frankfurt brings together the netizen community in Rhein-Main, developers, designers, creative directors, writers, basically everyone who contributes to and participates in digital life.

This specific webmontag was held as an ‘ignite’ session.

15 seconds per slide defines the rhythm of the evening.

20 slides, 5 minutes per presentation, with @JanEggers moderating the event.

The evening started out with @alipasha promoting the idea of plant based eating, as a counterpart to industrialisation of our food, follwed by @nerddream giving a talk on the maker scene in Rhein Main. Including cool pictures of the Arcade Museum and their planned retro computer museum.

The startup @sofaconcerts presented their new platform which brings together artists and hosts for living room concerts. Neat idea, great presentation and already 350 signed up artists (launched last December).

Or as @NathisTraxx puts it:

@julakim from Darmstadt presented on her South America Tour and played live on stage in the break

Eldar showed how small businesses can benefit from Big Data, and how large companies can support smaller ones by making use of Big Data.

Another highlight was the #bitcoin ATM, change your euros for bitcoin.

Getting stuff done is what really matters, not only for startups.

REST API testing in Chrome

Getting tired of using cURL for your API testing? Or just want to use a nice GUI tool directly from your browser? Then, maybe give Postman a try, if you are using Chrome.

You can also keep your history of requests in collection, so that you can re-run the same set of requests later.

Postman also supports Basic Auth and OAuth1.0 auth. OAuth2.0 support is in the issues list. The project is on github if someone volunteers to add OAuth2.0 support…
