The REST Dialogues

When I first encountered Duncan Cragg’s “REST dialogues” I was not sure how they would develop. As I have read more, I have become progressively more impressed. Cragg uses the style of a Socratic dialogue with an imaginary “eBay architect” to teach about the nature and use of REST techniques as an alternative to more traditional approaches such as SOAP and SOA.

Recent dialogues on Business Conversations and The Distributed Observer Pattern are particularly thought-provoking, but the whole growing series is definitely worth a read.
