  • CRUD Is Not REST - Hypermedia For Y'All!

    by Nick Sutterer

    REST is an architectural style for distributed systems.

    Monolithic applications are boring, so let's separate things and create a REST system as it is intended to be. Let's build a simple system using the Roar gem, Rails and Sinatra and discuss the benefits and drawbacks we get from distributed hypermedia systems.
