Embracing HTTP in the era of Web APIs

A session at SDD 2014

Tuesday 20th May, 2014

2:00pm to 3:30pm (GMT)

In this talk we’re going to get back to basics and understand the HTTP protocol and appreciate it for what it is: an application protocol. We will see how to effectively use HTTP to create a robust API for our applications which serve not only as end-points for integration but for the UI as well. We’ll see the differences between REST and HTTP APIs, and the benefits which the latter adds.

This is a session of back-to-the-metal, learning the ins and outs of what makes the web today.
