Successful REST API Design

Posted by Fernando Doglio

Jan 21, 2014 4:14:00 AM

Lately the REST "word" is being thrown into the digital wind very often, and often enough, it's not being fully understood, so as the concept gets twisted into incomplete versions of it, the products that use it end up missing some of the good parts.

In this post, we'll try to give a complete look of what REST is meant to mean and some of the standards being used nowadays on the software industry.

So, lets start with a small definition of how was REST defined when the concept was born:

REpresentational State Transfer

Roy Fielding presented the idea of REST on his doctoral dissertation, in it, he described the principles behind the concept. We'll be basing our difinition out of that paper.

From Fielding's dissertation:

The Representational State Transfer (REST) style is an abstraction of the architectural elements within a distributed hypermedia system.

So, to put it in plain english, REST is a architectural style that can be used to organize distributed systems. It is a style and not a standard, there is no RFC out there defining REST, and as such, it has and (to a lesser degree) it still is suffering from some miss interpretations that cause weird and semi implementations of this.

Lets go into some more details.

Tmux Install & Usage with NodeJS & Grunt Server Split Screen

Posted by Sam Deering

Nov 28, 2013 2:05:00 AM

Tmux is very similar to GNU Screen but is widely known as a newer version with extra features. I prefer using Tmux to GNU screen, simply because I find it more stable (it freezes a lot less often) & much faster to use (session/windows are so easy to manage). You can rebind the CTRL+c to Tmux so it's the same commands as GNU Screen for those who are familiar with those commands so don't worry about that. We will cover the Tmux config later in the post.

“This is one of the most robust findings in social science and also one of the most ignored.”

In July of 2009, Dan Pink took the TEDGlobal stage in Oxford, England to examine the traditions behind motivation - more specifically, motivation within the workplace. With a rather distinguished background, including a handful of New York Times bestsellers, the one-time title of chief speechwriter for Vice President Al Gore and recognition as one of the “50 most-influential management thinkers in the world,” his accomplishments alone captured the ears of his global audience. But the 18 minutes presentation that followed did little to disappoint.
