Rusty Old Car needs SOAP

A Fresh Coat Of REST Paint On A SOAP Stack

In my experience, once a SOAP API gets into production and is working, nobody wants to touch it.  They can be very finicky beasts. Sometimes the most innocuous update can stop a client application in its  tracks.  Exposing a SOAP API to external customers just raises the risk level.  One approach I frequently see is […]

Glenn Miller Loved HTTP

In The Mood For HTTP – Episode 3

The recording for episode #3 is now available on Crowdcast and YouTube. In this episode we cover issues like API description languages, security weaknesses in HTTP APIs and the illusive HTTP status code 410 Gone.

In the Mood for HTTP

In The Mood For HTTP – Open Q&A

As a software developer today it is pretty difficult to avoid working with HTTP in some capacity.  There also seems to be a growing desire among developers to get a deeper understanding of the protocol.  Recently Glenn Block and I decided it might be interesting to do a online Q&A about HTTP and try and answer developer […]

302 Baby

Glasses Reading IETF Specs

Navigating DRY IETF Specs

I’ve been reading IETF specifications for a number of years now and I find them fairly pleasant to read.  But I remember when I started there were a whole bunch of huh!? moments.  Since then I have learned many of the conventions and developed a few tricks that make the process easier.  I was just […]

Adam Ralph open source

There Is Almost Nothing to See Here

I just read Adam Ralph‘s post Blog == Weblog and I was inspired.  I started blogging 10 years ago because I wanted an outlet for my thoughts.  I didn’t take it particularly seriously as you would see if you dig back to the early days.  [ed note: which would be easier if my blog host actually provided an […]

Service Discovery Seal

Service Discovery : Redux

Yesterday, I had a thought.  It didn’t fit into a tweet so wrote a few paragraphs.  I was very pleased with myself, finally getting round to writing again after a few months off.  That was, until two different people who I respect highly, told me I was wrong.  That part sucked. Who Can Do This For […]

Service Discovery Keys

Service Discovery, The Easy Way

Here’s a thought that wouldn’t fit into a tweet and will serve the purpose of breaking my blogging dry spell.  With all the attention that microservices is currently receiving I regularly hear people talking about service discovery.  When trying to co-ordinate multiple different services working together, it is critical to be able to dynamically configure […]

Everything is Going to be… 308 Permanent Redirect

The last year has been been a very interesting one.  In April 2014, I announced that I was joining Runscope as a developer advocate. This will be my 50th blog post since that one.  I’ve covered all kinds of topics from the intricacies of HTTP to API design guidelines, tricks for using ASP.NET Web API, reviews of APIs, and summaries of some of the conferences that I […]
