I will first provide a brief introduction to REST and then describe how to build Web services in the REST style.
The topics contained in this section are intended to give you quick exposure to the Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) programming experience.

It's often hard for people to "get" REST, this is mostly due to the fact that REST isn't a tangible thing like a piece of software or even a specification, it's a selection of ideals, of best practices distilled from the HTTP specs.
