Evernote's developer offering. The OneNote API is a familiar REST implementation and hosts example code for Android, iOS, and Windows on GitHub . I have a few nitpicks on the iOS code that OneNote's developer team provided, but compared to Evernote I was able to understand it and pick up their platform infinitely faster.

To create new content in OneNote through their API you just post Plain Jane HTML to one of their endpoints.

Is it as powerful as Evernote…

Riak. During his time at Basho he also developed Webmachine, a RESTful webserver in Erlang, and RiakCS, an S3-compatible, large-scale object storage system. I've known Andy for years and he's one of the smartest engineers I've met — he's a modest guy so I figured I needed to say it for him. What makes him great is that he's adaptable and capable of solving problems no matter what language they're written in or what systems are involved. You can learn …

Glassboard's Android and iOS apps, like most mobile apps, are powered by a REST API. The API app is an ASP project that uses WCF to distribute the JSON payloads. If there's one thing I hate, it is WCF. A lot. My next big backend project is converting from WCF to the new Web API 2 technology that is a lot easier to work with. It's all written in C#, which I have found to be a pretty nice language.

The API is deployed to a Cloud Service , …

…pattern. Resources handle the 85% case where your application is representing standard RESTful CRUD operations on a ‘thing', such as an article. The above example route could be replaced with: resources :articles

…a fun exercise for the reader. Write a program that implements each of the steps above by doing a REST call. For instance, to "Open blender", just do a post to some server with the string "Open blender". The server doesn't really have to do anything (we'll just pretend). Implement the entire recipe using the opportunities for concurrency provided by the diagram above. Can your system figure out what things can be done concurrently automatically and then do them concurrently …
