REST and HATEOAS – A Case Study

A RESTful API is only truly RESTful if it uses hypermedia to tell us about all the actions that can be performed on the curent resource, allowing us to traverse the API from a single entry point.

His session looks at REST and HATEOAS (Hypermedia As The Engine Of Application State) to illustrate good service structure. Ben will use the RESTful file sharing service to illustrate the various examples of how this can be used.

This session is recommended for architects and senior developers alike and will give a good grounding in writing excellent, self-explanatory RESTful services.
