Tech on the Go: REST

JavaScript, more than most languages, spends a lot of time bouncing information back and forth. Whether a user is interacting with forms in a browser, or applications are shipping data around with APIs, a lot of the work is actually quite simple: a process of calling something then waiting. You can’t just stop working while you’re waiting, though, or you won’t ever get anything done. Join instructor Sasha Vodnik to explore the complications and advantages of using this asynchronous style, with tips on how to make it easier to structure efficient, manageable code. Discover the basics of representational state transfer, more commonly known as REST, as Sasha shows you the best practices for building a RESTful API. Along the way, gather insights for building APIs that are approachable and easy for developers to extend.
