The REST Elevator Pitch

Koranteng Ofosu-Amaah - The REST Elevator Pitch:

"I've recently been thinking about defining the hardest problems I've encountered in software engineering, my cursory top 10 list:

  • State
  • Caching
  • Latency
  • Concurrency
  • Search
  • Metadata
  • Persistence
  • The Holy Grail Of Extensibility
  • Structured data
  • Character encoding

Now I'm not a database person so I handwaved away all of those data peoples' worries in one word: persistence."
