"The Future of Web Services" Video

by gregg on Dec 17, 2007

If you're just getting into Rails or you're not entirely clear on the whole REST thing, I gave a .

A few weeks ago I didn't fully understand why REST was good, or why I should design my applications in a RESTful way. Hopefully this talk will help spread some understanding on the topic.

Here is what I cover:

  • The big problem with Web Services
  • Does REST solve this problem?
  • What is REST?
  • Why is it only now that big companies are using REST?
  • How did Rails become RESTful?
  • Live Rails Code Demo
  • Can Java talk to a RESTful Rails server?
  • What is ActiveResource?
  • What are the benefits of being RESTful?
  • How do we take RPC type functions and make them RESTful?
  • The future of web services

As always, your comments and commentary is always welcome. I'm always trying to become a better speaker. A PDF of the slides can be downloaded here.
