Datanauts 169: Understanding RESTful APIs For Infrastructure Engineers


If you’re a modern sort of infrastructure engineer, you’re likely interested in APIs.
Structured data, everybody. That’s a big win. RESTful APIs are the most common you’re likely to run into when managing infrastructure, and on today’s show I interview Chris all about RESTful API fundamentals.
Your buzzword bingo list includes automation, abstraction, pagination, idempotent, JSON, YAML, swagger, and versioning. Drink!
We discuss:

* What is a REST and how provides a set of definitions for how APIs can share data
* How APIs work
* How APIs tie into automation
* The anatomy of an API conversation
* Key subjects including authorization, pagination, versioning, and idempotent requests
* Education and training available from Rubrik Build
