Smoothing Out the Rough Edges of REST
I have never given this talk before in any conference. It iEnforcing the cloud presence of an organization by exposing a RESTfull API is of extreme importance. It is a demanding and formidable task that can turn out to be either a great asset or a dire liability. This challenge is amplified by the vagueness of what a REST architecture is, and the diversity in approaches and opinions among the leading Web APIs.
This session attempts a balance between the spirit and philosophy behind REST, and the practicality and elegance inspired by the principles of modern API design. This very idea is highlighted through a series of concrete issues that frequently surface while building or evolving a mature REST interface whose goal is not only to be complete and feature-rich, but also intuitive and practical.More talks
