As a technology professional, it is important to keep my skills sharp and stay up-to-date on the latest technology. The first step toward that end was finding my dream job. Nevertheless, it’s important to experiment with new things outside of work. Things that I would not normally get a chance to do otherwise. I’m using this post outline a plan of attack over the course of the rest of the year.
In preparation for building a RESTful API for my fitness app (and other on-the-job projects), I recently read Lorna Jane Mitchell’s book “PHP Web Services: APIs for the Modern Web“. It was fantastic and everything one could hope for in a technical read. It covered a wide range of topics, and yet each was in just enough detail that I could create working samples of my own.
