Ideas of March: REST better

Chris just pointed out we need a blog revival, ‘cause microbloggin services are just killing real blogs and really deep debates.

So I’ve just decided to start a series of post dealing with common misconception and tutorials about the REST architectural style.

Here’s the topics I’m planning to cover:

Since I’m a big fan of REST and since we really need deep documentation on some basics and pro-topics I hope it will help somebody.

First step: links, man!

As a first step in this series of posts I will only give you a couple of useful links to better understand the basics of REST.

David Zuelke knows best, so give a look to his Designing HTTP interfaces and RESTful webservices.

For those of you who didn’t checked it out, you may be interested about the presentation I gave at the Codemotion ( the former italian JavaDay ), called REST in peace.

If you find any typos or want to suggest something feel free to comment the presentation on slideshare or here.


Hi there! I recently wrote an ebook on web application security, currently sold on leanpub, the Amazon Kindle store and gumroad.

It contains 160+ pages of content dedicated to securing web applications and improving your security awareness when building web apps, with chapters ranging from explaining how to secure HTTP cookies with the right flags to understanding why it is important to consider joining a bug bounty program.

Feel free to skim through some of the free chapters published on this blog and, if the content seems interesting enough to you, grab a copy on leanpub, the Amazon Kindle store, gumroad or simply checkout right down below!
