REST API Best Practices 5: Further Reading

Since I started writing on REST API Best Practices there have been some interesting new developments. Going forward we'll take a look at some of them, covering things like documenting APIs, how to define relationships between different resources, and various tools that - while not specifically REST-related - are useful for working with JSON as a data interchange format.

In the meantime, here's a list of articles that provide more information on a lot of the concepts that were outlined in the first four posts on REST API Best Practices. No doubt a lot more has been written about REST APIs in the last few years, but I think these resources are a pretty good window into some of the original sources that shaped the best practices used for REST API design today.
