In this talk, Steve will explain how to design your APIs so that they truly embrace the web and HTTP. Just as there's an impedance mismatch between our databases, our ORMs, and our models, there's an equal mismatch between our applications, our APIs, and our clients. Pros and cons of this approach will be discussed, as well as why more people aren't building APIs this way yet.

Lorna Mitchell (LornaJane)
Whether you're consumer or provider, getting the API right is a puzzle. This session gives the best practices for making this relationship easier all round, with clear PHP-based examples and a few war stories to go with them.
