stefan tilkov's REST/SOA talk

2007-11-24 @ 11:57#

stefan tilkov has done a great talk comparing SOA and REST. i am finding myself watching it more than once to get some of the nuance. well worth the 30 min.

the site hosting the talk is pretty nice, too. shows both the video and the slides. even allows you to 'click-ahead' to skip slides and keeps the video in sync. nice stuff!

stefan's "REST in Five Easy Steps" is pretty good, too:

  1. give everything an id
  2. link things to each other
  3. use standard methods
  4. allow for multiple representations
  5. communicate statelessly
