One of REST’s constraints is that of a uniform interface.
The main idea of the uniform interface is that it allows components to interact without prior knowledge of each other. Web Architecture is a great example of how a uniform interface creates a large and dynamic ecosystem of interacting components.
This talks presents an overview of the various axes of the uniform interface, and introduces webconcepts.info, a resource intended to provide an overview of the constantly evolving set of Web concepts that make up the Web’s uniform interface.
