A lot of Web Services today claim to be RESTful APIs. But are they really? Do the URLs accurately identify resources? Are the powers of HTTP leveraged properly? What is "hypermedia", what is the Uniform Interface, and what is the secret behind the HATEOAS acronym that is so essential to the REST architectural style? This talk gives answers and guidelines using real-life examples.

The best technical talk I have seen so far. Speaker knows his subject thoroughly and explained the more difficult aspects of REST in great detail.

Wow. Brilliant job. That was easily the most thorough discussion of the topic (REST) that I've ever seen. Don't change anything, and keep doing this talk.

Great talk!
Explained in depth (and also in stages) how to apply good practices to design a powerful API.

Loved it! Now I know that most APIs are not REST...and more importantly why...and why it matters!

That was sooo great! Information was very complete and well driven to the audience who's appreciated David's usual bits of humor.
To make it short: that was definitely one of my best experiences at Confoo this year, and maybe the best of them!
