The Web is fast becoming a serious competitor to traditional enterprise architecture approaches. This tutorial will provide an introduction to RESTful Web Service techniques, both from a theoretical and practical perspectives. The tutorial is broken down as follows:

* Semantics using Microformats and RDF
* Hypermedia and the REST architectural style
* Scalability and how a text-based client-server polling protocol outperforms everything else!

* Conclusions and further thoughts
Participants should be comfortable with distributed computing concepts, but won't need any particular integration or middleware experience
