REST HOW TOs

Consuming and Building REST API in Python, Ruby, Java, C# and Go

About the Book

REST is the most used mechanism to publish APIs for general consumption. Each language has its own set of libraries and methods that helps a developer to consume these APIs. In this book, we have focused on five of these languages - Python, Ruby, Java, C# and Go and their libraries.

This part of this book would guide you in working with each of these languages in using REST APIs for various scenarios. The second part of the book would focus on building your own REST APIs in all of these languages. This book is geared towards intermediate to advanced users where we will be covering topics such CORS, Interceptors, Caching, SSL and automated API documentation in the later part of the book.
