Resource-Oriented Architecture

Resource-Oriented Architecture

Video Training

Move beyond concrete and highly coupled thinking as you learn a new approach for building long-lived and evolvable systems. You’ll get a deeper understanding of the Web and why it works, and then learn to make architectural decisions that endure beyond particular technology and implementation choices. You’ll see how software architecture can be approached by way of network-friendly, standards-based resource-oriented systems and you’ll broaden your palette of architectural tools along the way.

Below are the video training courses included in this Learning Path.


Resource-Oriented Architectures: Hypermedia

Presented by Brian Sletten 6 hours 7 minutes

What’s the best set of tools for building systems that live long and evolve easily? The Web. In this course you’ll acquire a deeper understanding of how the Web works and see how basic tools spawned the REST architectural style. Instructor Brian Sletten will introduce you to a blend of theoretical concepts and practical design as you learn to think in terms of resources, rather than simply in code and services. This step of your Learning Path will teach you how to make architectural decisions that survive well beyond specific technology and implementation choices.


Resource-Oriented Architectures: Linking Data

Presented by Brian Sletten 3 hours 49 minutes

REST isn’t an endpoint, but a set of architectural constraints that elicit useful properties in the systems we build. But REST is also a gateway to an entirely new way of thinking in terms of resources. In this segment of your Learning Path, you’ll see how Linked Data builds on existing architectural successes to let you connect information in the same way the Web connects documents. Under instructor Brian Sletten’s guidance, you’ll learn how to choose network-friendly, standards-based tools to create systems that scale, evolve, and respond to changing requirements better, faster, and cheaper than before.
