10 Things a Website Should Never, Ever Do / Kyle Schaeffer As a designer of the world wide web, you are armed with the power to amaze, enlighten, entice, and captivate. The web is an easel for your creative aspirations, and the content you design for is the foundation of your creativity. With so much power at the tips of your fingers, you also possess the ability to deter, annoy, anger, and infuriate. Your users are yours to command, their emotions yours to pluck like the strings of a harp. It’s the latter of these powers that we discuss today: your ability to destroy the desire for users to stay on your site. RESTful API Design: Teach a Dog to REST UPDATED November 2011: Check out the second edition of the webinar - RESTful API Design. It's been 10 years since Roy Fielding first defined REST in his dissertation on Architectural Styles and the Design of Network-based Software Architectures. Since then, REST is often held as the standard for usable, well-designed, easy-to-integrate APIs. At the Cloudstock hackathon, I presented "Teach a Dog to REST," asking the question: where are all the elegant REST APIs we'd all hoped to see? While many claim REST has arrived, many APIs in the wild exhibit arbitrary, productivity-killing deviations from true REST. In this presentation, I start with a typical poorly-designed API and iterate it into a well-behaved RESTful API.
