Learn best practices to efficiently build scalable, reliable, and maintainable high performance RESTful services
The convergence of social networking, cloud computing, and the era of mobile applications has created a generation of emerging technologies that allow different networked devices to communicate with each other over the Internet with REST. REST has the benefits of being stateless; easing scalability, visibility, and reliability; and being platform and language agnostic.
This book is a practical, hands-on guide that provides you with clear and pragmatic information to take advantage of the real power of RESTful services and gives you a good foundation for using them in your applications. By comparing APIs from platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, GitHub, and PayPal, the book teaches a range of exciting capabilities with RESTful services and explores the infinite possibilities by using the diverse building blocks and tips covered in various chapters.
By the end of the book, you will be able to successfully use the concepts explained to design and implement applications based on best practices for RESTful services.
