Some of the topics we'll cover include:

• Media Types as a strategy for interoperability among browsers, REST clients and services

• Common media types for REST

• Media Type specification and registration

• Link Relations

• An interpretation of the Hypermedia principle (HATEOAS): "The whole media type, and nothing but the media type."

• HTTP Content Negotiation

• Media Type extensibility with subtypes, parameters and profiles.
