REST is everywhere. You may have consumed RESTful APIs before, but implementing your own can present unique design challenges. In this session, we'll start off with an overview of REST and why/how it's used. We'll quickly get into the basic principles of RESTful APIs, terminology, design patterns, data, pitfalls, best practices, and more. Finally, using a TDD approach, we'll walk through a RESTful web service in NodeJS.
