Making RESTful APIs is hard, really hard. There are a lot of concepts to know - resources, representations, HTTP methods, status codes, etc.
And putting this all to life in a sane way in PHP is no small task. In this course, we'll learn all the most fundamental concepts around REST and learn about the "rules" and the advantages and disadvantages of each. And we'll of course build a real API to show it all off. Topics include:
If you want to know about Hypermedia, HATEOAS, Content-Type negotiation, pagination and more, these are not covered here, but are covered in Episode 2.
This tutorial uses Silex and we avoid talking about it as much as possible and instead focus on the core concepts of REST. Once you understand these, you can watch our Symfony REST series to learn how to leverage Symfony for your API.
