Packt recently announced a new book that will help web developers learn the basic architectural concepts of creating RESTful web services in the PHP code. Written by Samisa Abeysinghe, RESTful PHP Web Services will introduce users to the tools and frameworks that can be used when developing RESTful PHP applications.
Representational State Transfer (REST) is a form of software architecture; systems that follow it are often called RESTful. It is the architectural style that drives the World Wide Web and RESTful web services to use simple protocols already familiar to web developers.
This book helps bridge the gap between understanding the basic concepts of REST architectural style or approach and implementing them in day-to-day work. This book will walk users through PHP tools, libraries and techniques for working with RESTful web services and will also teach them to use other RESTful services from their PHP applications.
