Abstract: 

Representational State Transfer (REST) has been taking the online world by storm, but most commentators state that HTTP is the only protocol that can implement REST. James will present the key architectural aspects of REST and show how a Virtual File System (VFS) combined with a NAS protocol can support the architectural principles completely. He will then demonstrate a real implementation of the theories on a live system.

Learning Objectives

Understanding of REST architectural style.
Understanding of the untapped potential in NAS protocols.
Insight into how a Virtual File System can support a workflow.
Demonstration of working codification of theoretical ideas.
