Roy Fielding

Roy Fielding ...father of REST

All serious web developers and engineers should give this a read:

Architectural Styles and the Design of Network-based Software Architectures

"REST is not an architecture, it’s a set of design criteria. REST is very general. It leaves a lot of open space, which practioners have seeded with folklore”(1)

For more specifics on an architecture utilizing REST… I point you to Leonard Richardson and Sam Ruby’s book (1) “RESTful Web Services” (O’Reilly). Incredible read, paradigm-changing insightful.
