Kip Hampton will give a talk at YAPC::NA_2012 described as:
     Developing for the Web shouldnt be hard. Yet, many smart developers
     make it more difficult than it needs to be by choosing tools and
     frameworks that do not fully take advantage of all that HTTP has to
     offer. This talk demonstrates how projects at all levels from the
     simplest brochureware site to the most advanced Hypermedia APIscan
     be made simpler by getting back to the basics of HTTP. We introduce
     Tamarous internal application development and publishing framework,
     Magpie (scheduled for public release to coincide with YAPC::NA) and
     step through a series of real-world examples to show how its
     resource-oriented approach to development keeps simple things simple
     and makes hard things easier. 
     Topics include:
     * Why MVC is the wrong way to think about Web development.
     * Why most frameworks that claim to be RESTful arent (and how that
     makes life harder)
     * An brief introduction to Resource-oriented development.
     * A series of production-tested Magpie recipes covering the gamut of
     Web-dev from simple templated sites through advanced Hypermedia
