Everything you need to know about REST


RESTful services are the next big new, yet not so new thing. After years of dealing with SOAP Developers, Architects and even Users are looking for a simpler alternative for working with resources on the net. REST based services provide a simple and intraoperative way to use web services in everything from C to JavaScript. In this session you’ll learn everything you need to know about designing and developing REST services. We’ll discuss routing, HTTP verbs, return codes and designing service routes. You’ll be shown some simple and free tools to help you develop and test your services and you’ll learn how to quickly and easily create your own REST services (to return POX and JSON) in .NET using WCF or ASP.NET MVC.
