API Anti-Patterns (how NOT to write a RESTful API)
[Vimeo http://vimeo.com/13922981 w=640&h=385]
I had the honor of giving another talk at PHPLondon this month. Although I only had two weeks notice to research and write the thing, I think I managed to pull it off!
The talk was on API Anti-Patterns. I’d originally thought about doing a talk on How To Write a RESTful API, but the topic is enormous and sprawling and I only had 30 mins. So, I flipped the idea on it’s head and wrote about the things which we find with supposedly RESTful APIs which really aren’t RESTful. It’s shorter and, more importantly, funnier. So, below you’ll find the video and the slides from the night. Get in touch if you have any questions.
