REST in Practice talks
Announcing a series of talks and presentations around the new book REST in Practice, written by Jim Webber (ThoughtWorks), Ian Robinson (ThoughtWorks) and Savas Parastatidis (Microsoft).
Why don't typical enterprise projects go as smoothly as projects you develop for the Web? Does the REST architectural style really present a viable alternative for building distributed systems and enterprise-class applications?
In this insightful book, three SOA experts provide a down-to-earth explanation of REST and demonstrate how you can develop simple and elegant distributed hypermedia systems by applying the Web's guiding principles to common enterprise computing problems. You'll learn techniques for implementing specific Web technologies and patterns to solve the needs of a typical company as it grows from modest beginnings to become a global enterprise.
