As a web developer, have you ever come across other developers talking about REST?
It is spoken often in the web development community and stands for Representational State Transfer. It is a method of creating APIs with certain organizational principles used for data transmission that is commonly used for web applications. It can also be used to transfer data to software as well.
It can seem a bit confusing for developers hearing it the first time. The following linked article discusses on the basics of REST, and what is it. The author explains RESTful development practices from a bird’s-eye view and tackles the what rather than the how. It is a post made for anyone who’s into web development, but simply cannot grasp the concept of REST APIs.
