Best Practices for Designing a Pragmatic RESTful API | Vinay Sahni
Now, the internet has no shortage on opinions on API design. But, since there's no one widely adopted standard that works in all cases, you're left with a bunch of choices: What formats should you accept? How should you authenticate? Should your API be versioned?

In designing an API for SupportFu (Customer support software for SaaS & eCommerce), I've tried to come up with pragmatic answers to these questions. My goal is for the SupportFu API to be easy to use, easy to adopt and flexible enough to dogfood for our own user interfaces.

Como começaram os web services da amazon (entre outras coisas)

"So one day Jeff Bezos issued a mandate. He's doing that all the time, of course, and people scramble like ants being pounded with a rubber mallet whenever it happens. But on one occasion -- back around 2002 I think, plus or minus a year -- he issued a mandate that was so out there, so huge and eye-bulgingly ponderous, that it made all of his other mandates look like unsolicited peer bonuses."

In Skinny Daemons, Dave Hrycyszyn presents a practical walkthrough of how he builds what he calls "skinny daemons" - small, HTTP based daemons to perform single tasks that are then packaged up into gems for easy installation (across multiple servers, for example). It's a practical demonstration and holds your hand the whole way. Useful stuff. An example of a skinny daemon is enigmamachine, a video processor Web service using ffmpeg to convert videos to profiles of your choice.

What makes a good API wrapper? — Wynn Netherland
As cool new RESTful services crop up practically each day, I find myself using or writing a lot of Ruby API wrappers. So much that I’ve seen some common approaches emerge, each with their own pros and cons. There are many considerations in designing an API wrapper, but it’s important to make the library feel as natural as possible in the language in which it’s written. With many APIs, there’s room for multiple successful libraries.

iPhone app development with Ruby web services – Justin Leitgeb
I recently submitted SubwayDelay, an application I wrote to help NYC subway riders figure out the best train to take, to the App review process. The application should be available in the App Store in about two weeks. In this blog post, I’ll discuss some things that I learned while creating the application, which interacts with a web service built in Ruby. In particular, I’ll touch on creating web services with Sinatra and key-value storage systems, and on using some of the new features of iPhone OS 3.0, including Core Data. Finally, I’ll give some pointers on navigating the technical material from Apple related to more obscure parts of the App submission process.
