Everything You Know About REST Is Wrong!

A session at The Twilio Conference

Thursday 22nd September, 2011

2:10pm to 2:50pm (PST)

Pretty much every web service that uses HTTP verbs is calling itself RESTful these days, but what does that even mean? What makes a service RESTful? Why would you write a service using the REST style? Why are most services that call themselves RESTful actually just RPC in REST clothing? Steve will answer all these questions and more, as well as discussing where following strict REST does not make sense.
