Uses wireshark to show what headers look like.

What is REST?

  • Representational State Transfer
  • Actions are performed independently of other actions.
  • Do something to a resource and tell me if it worked.
  • Demonstrates with a homemade restful program.
    • Sends info – just says 200OK (no extra data needed)
    • Gets info – it comes back. How it is stored is irrelevant.

The presentation is good, but way more technical then I ever could have expected. This is defanatly the most TPR session that I have been to in the TPR track.
