What’s the best set of tools for building systems that live long and evolve easily? The Web. This video course helps software engineers and architects gain a deeper understanding of how the Web works, and how those basic tools spawned the REST architectural style. Through a blend of theoretical concepts and practical design, you’ll learn to think in terms of resources, rather than simply in code and services.
If you have experience in building small to medium systems, this video provides the groundwork you need. You’ll be ready to move past concrete and highly coupled thinking to make architectural decisions that survive well beyond specific technology and implementation choices.

About the O’Reilly Software Architecture Series
Clearing a path from developer to architect and enriching that path once you arrive.
Software architecture is a fast-moving, multidisciplinary subject in which entire suites of "best practices" become obsolete practically overnight. No single path or curriculum exists, and different types of architecture—application, integration, enterprise—require different subject emphasis. Whether you’re at the outset of a career as an architect or in the midst of such a career, series editor Neal Ford has curated this collection of tools and guides for aspiring and seasoned architects alike.
