A lot of Web Services today claim to be RESTful APIs. But are they really? Do the URLs form a logical hierarchy, and do they accurately identify resources? Are the powers of HTTP leveraged properly? What is "hypermedia", 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.

Excellent overview of REST principles and features of HTTP, delivered with enthusiasm and energy. I liked the review of the twitter API with 'what they should have done' notes - was easy to map that to personal experience and think of flaws in the things I've worked on, which is really helpful.

How to destroy in seconds Twitter's API. I think the best example to see what's the way to follow. I'm working on some APIs (from just a couple of weeks) that I want to be RESTful and with all these suggests I can better my work. Look forward for a great workshop.

Great talk with a lot of background information and examples. Very interesting to know that most people use "REST" the wrong way. He not only showed us what is wrong but also how to do it right. Also David is a great presenter.

I quite liked this talk (well, except the YAML bashing perhaps ;) ). Lots of good information. I especially liked the very practical examples using the twitter REST API, and how this does not make sense.

Best Talk on Conference. Sometimes a bit fast - No chance to write something down. But brilliant talk anyway. :)
