REST Best Practices

REST Best Practices

(For the record, I hate the phrase "best practices" and prefer "common practices.")

When we discuss APIs, most people immediately think of OAuth, GET and POST, and JSON, few people think of the underlying concepts of nouns and verbs, idempotence, and uniform interfaces. Even less consider how we can combine these concepts into hypermedia to build APIs that are useful, logical, and future-friendly. In this session, we'll combine the basics, explore the larger concepts, and look at the standards that are leading the way.
