Download E38 - Glenn Block Evolves APIs (MP3).

Kerry and Rinat welcome guest Glenn Block to discuss hypermedia Web APIs, and the new book he co-authored on the subject. They get into some of the differences between systems that are designed to take advantage of the constraints of the REST architecture style, with those that are not. What is hypermedia? Should you always adhere to REST constraints and use hypermedia when building a Web API? What are some ways to implement these concepts on the client and server and how do they interact? What are some common implementation mistakes? API security? What can your book help me with? UCWA? And much more.
