I just published a very special edition of the REST API Notes Newsletter. As we begin a new year, I was struck by the 10th anniversary of the original iPhone announcement. RESTful APIs existed before smart phones, of course. However, the popularity of mobile computing thrust an untold number of developers down the path of service architecture. I pause to ruminate on how far we've come (and just where we might need to go).
