Designing a Beautiful REST+JSON API

Designing a clean and intuitive REST + JSON API is no small feat. You have to worry about resources, collections of resources, pagination, query parameters, references to other resources, which HTTP Methods to use, HTTP Caching, security, and more! And you have to make sure it lasts and doesn't break clients as you add features over time.

In this presentation, Les Hazlewood will share all of the golden nuggets learned while designing, implementing and supporting JSON-based REST APIs. He will cover:
-JSON-based data formats in a RESTful API
-References to other JSON-based resources (aka 'linking').
-Resource collections and pagination
-How to map HTTP methods to Resource CRUD
-Resource partial updates
-Supporting HTTP Method Overloading
-API versioning strategies
-Many-to-many resource relationships
-HTTP Caching and Optimistic concurrency control
-Authentication & Security
