Creating HTTP APIs to comply with today’s fashion
Most applications nowadays, whether they are mobile, web or even desktop, talk to some backend which usually ends up in the form of a web service. When it comes to implementing this service, we’re often faced with the dilemma of what architecture or style we should use. Do we go RPC, HTTP or jump on the REST bandwagon (which doesn’t mean pretty URL’s and JSON)? In this talk we’re going to dive deep into HTTP as a protocol and see what it offers us. We’ll then see what we gain and lose by using some of the different styles aforementioned.
