Hi Dietrich,

> I have never been to that congress and I wonder if it makes sense to have a workshop in the sense of getting some working code.

Working code is interesting as long as it illustrates a (relatively) novel technique or method.
For instance, a paper that reminded me of Hydra, and also is based on “working code”, is this one:

Pragmatic Hypermedia: Creating a Generic, Self-Inflating API Client for Production Use by Pete Gamache
http://ws-rest.org/2014/sites/default/files/wsrest2014_submission_6.pdf

It is based on code, both the concepts behind it transcend the code itself.

For inspiration in general, do check out last year's papers: http://ws-rest.org/2014/program

> What if I have in mind is to work together one day to solve a challenge that shows the power of hydra, like "use existing libraries to implement a client that interoperates with two different hydra apis/independently implement two simple apis with hydra" for something that is not covered by existing media-types, i.e. not a blog post.

That seems very relevant!

> Goal: prove what works well/identify weaknesses.

And that is *exactly* what we are looking for: lessons learned.

> Rest Fest has done something similar for alps a while ago.

Yeah. The main difference is that WS-REST is at a scientific conference;
that doesn't mean your paper has to contain formulas or anything ;-)
it mostly means that we use a more structured/method-driven approach.
Browse through last year's paper to have an idea.

Best,

Ruben
