+
+This talk will cover some of the basics of the REST architectural style - what it is and what its benefits are.
+It'll also cover some of the thornier aspects of implementing RESTful Web APIs, touch on some areas that are still often misunderstood, and will finish by taking a look at building RESTful APIs with Django.
+
+* Why REST?
+* Caching - What we're (still) doing wrong.
+* Content Negotiation - One resource, many representations.
+* Why we ought to be building Web browse-able APIs - A call to arms.
+* Web APIs & Django - What tools are and aren't in the box?
+* Introduction to Django REST framework.
+* The take home - Where do we go from here?
