Chapter 8 - RESTful Web APIs Paperback by Leonard Richardson & Mike Amundsen

RESTful Web APIs Paperback by Leonard Richardson & Mike Amundsen


The popularity of REST in recent years has led to tremendous growth in almost-RESTful APIs that don’t include many of the architecture’s benefits. With this practical guide, you’ll learn what it takes to design usable REST APIs that evolve over time. By focusing on solutions that cross a variety of domains, this book shows you how to create powerful and secure applications, using the tools designed for the world’s most successful distributed computing system: the World Wide Web.

You’ll explore the concepts behind REST, learn different strategies for creating hypermedia-based APIs, and then put everything together with a step-by-step guide to designing a RESTful Web API.

• Examine API design strategies, including the collection pattern and pure hypermedia

• Understand how hypermedia ties representations together into a coherent API
Discover how XMDP and ALPS profile formats can help you meet the Web API "semantic challenge"

• Learn close to two-dozen standardized hypermedia data formats

• Apply best practices for using HTTP in API implementations

• Create Web APIs with the JSON-LD standard and other the Linked Data approaches

• Understand the CoAP protocol for using REST in embedded systems

    Sony kindly provides the meeting room and sodas/water. They require sign-in and escort, so we gather first at Starbucks. We wait a few minutes for stragglers. After that, check with security in the lobby of the Sony building across the street, asking them to look for a note from Ken about the meeting. I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm a little off with this.

      Get a couple of developers together and inevitably you will start talking dev so yes there will be learning at Starbucks.
