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.

I can imagine now, what could be done with REST, but I can sense, what mistakes one can do building a REST API. Maybe this talk is the kick-off for the first steps with REST.

Thank you for clarifying the REST-thing to us.

I really like the "bad thing good thing"-examples from Twitter. That really opened up my eyes for creating better Services (allthough they might not be REST).

Thank you very much
