Mark Baker, “REST” (MP3 audio, Jon Udell’s Interviews with Innovators, IT Conversations, 2009/02/18

Representational State Transfer, or REST, is an Internet design approach that become foundational in much development work.

Mark Baker has always worked with distributed systems, starting with DCE and CORBA. When he learned about the Web’s REST architectural style, he embraced it as a better way. When the Web Services movement veered away from key RESTful principles — a uniform interface, hyperlinked representations — he campaigned vigorously for them. Now, he tells host Jon Udell, REST has won the web, although not yet the enterprise.

Mark Baker is a Senior Solution Engineer at Day Software where he helps customers put their data and services on the Web using Day’s software. He is best known for his work over the past decade to try to bring the foundational Web services specifications in line with Web architecture, using his knowledge of the REST architectural style.
