RESTful APIs are the de facto standard for web services today, and JSON is quickly becoming the dominant format. How do you represent hypermedia links, however, so that you can provide users with the next set of actions available? How do you communicate errors? Hypermedia Application Language, or HAL, provides a number of strategies and answers around these questions. In this workshop, we'll look at the various considerations necessary when building RESTful JSON APIs, and how adopting standards outlined by HAL can enable you to build robust APIs for your end users.
Examples will use Zend Framework 2 and modules developed for Zend Framework 2, but the strategies and ideas outlined should be portable to any project.
