Title: Beyond REST maturity levels: Insights from building a real life, high-load REST API
Links: slides

Implementing a REST API is not only about designing correct resource URLs. I will talk about the software and system engineering part it takes to build a data API. I will show concrete examples from a project where we gather data from dozens of different services and systems and build a real-time capable data store. The main technology stack is Symfony, Elasticsearch and Varnish.
