April 28, 2016 | 1585 Views

What is REST API? To make it simple, REST API is a particular architectural approach to putting together the agreed set of standardized ways and interaction rules that a particular piece of software can be used. Basically it’s a methodology designed to let the programs talk to each other in a way as simple as possible.Crunchify.com-RESTful-Introduction
