An Introduction to WebDAV, Ivan Ivanov
2011-01-05 @ 17:45 EST (22:45 UTC) - Suspenders Bar and Restaurant

WebDAV is an HTTP-based protocol designed to turn the Web into a writable media. The major web server vendors provide compliant implementations and most OSes come with built-in clients. The presentation will describe how it works and why it is a viable alternative for web publishing.

Ivan Ivanov met WebDAV for the first time as a service by a web hosting provider. He built a software repository with a WebDAV backend at a previous job and he implemented dependency management and deployment tracking based on it.
