php|architect Live! Virtual REST Summit
Monday, July 30, 2012 from 12:00 PM to 4:30 PM (EDT)
Representational State Transfer—REST—is the stuff that modern APIs are made of. If you or your team use REST or are planning to use it for your projects, the php|architect Live! Virtual REST Summit will help you take your knowledge to the next level and fully understand what is so great about REST and what makes it the ideal choice for most Web-based APIs.
We have gathered four presenters who are experts in HTTP and REST because they use it day in and day out in practical scenarios that range from actively used APIs to custom-built internal Websites. They will draw on their practical knowledge to help you get the most out of REST:
- Start with the basics, “What is REST?” Understand that REST is not a technology, but a way to organize resources and act on them.
- Next, spend some time understanding HTTP, which is at the core of REST. Go beyond GET and POST and understand the full set of commands at your fingertips, and the advantages that come with making full use of the infrastructure that powers the Web.
- Next, we will look at the principles of REST, building on your newfound knowledge of HTTP to understand how REST leverages various Web technologies to provide an API environment that is scalable, predictable, and highly performant.
- Finally, we will close up with a look at practical REST implementations, with tips to getting up and running quickly and efficiently, regardless of whether you're starting from scratch, or adding a new API to an existing project.
