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:
- the uniform interface
- DAP & HATEOAS
- why should I care about REST?
- common pitfalls
- a RESTful architecture with Symfony2 ( dude, just don’t pretend it, I’ll try :–))
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.
