The Counterintuitive Web

March 15th, 2010  |  Published in Events, REST by Ian Robinson

The slides from last week’s talk at QCon, The Counterintuitive Web, are now available online.

In the talk I described how we can implement rich and interesting business processes in (RESTful) Web applications, but only if we think in terms of protocol resources, not coarse-grained domain resources. By embracing the Web as first and foremost a web of data, an open set of resource representations manipulated in the same-old-same-old ways using a closed set of verbs, our designs capture the behaviours most CRUD-based, data-centric applications so sorely lack.

Many thanks to Dan North for inviting me to speak on his Irresponsible Architectures and Unusual Architects track.
