Pragmatic APIs 101
Over the last five years, I have studied REST and HTTP APIs a lot. Nowadays, everyone claims to have a REST API, yet the REST architecture is complex and not really practicable in real life. In this talk, we will see that it does not matter to be 100% REST-compliant, and above all, how to build an API in a pragmatic manner.
About the slides
This slide deck has been written with
Monod, then exported as a Markdown file
monod.md) using Cmd + S. I created a Reveal.js template
made of HTML and CSS (using the same CSS as in Monod), and a tool to fix a few
things in the markdown exported by Monod (
bin/fix script). The idea of this
slide deck is to have a backup, in case the Internet goes wrong, my laptop
burns, or any other disaster.
Here is my workflow:
- I write slides in Monod
- I export the Markdown into this repository
- I run
- I commit both
- I profit!
