We’re busy, but there’s still time for REST

Yes, it has been a while since I have graced this site with one of my blogs. And I know you are thinking to yourself…Thank God! But in the words of the great of Russell Casse from the movie Independence Day, “Hello, Boys, I’m BAAAAACK!” Okay, so I’m not flying an airplane into an alien spaceship, but I am writing this blog.

Back to the subject at hand. We here at LearnNowOnline have been very busy as you may have noticed. In the hustle and bustle, we have released two great new courses covering RESTful Services featuring expert Jordan Hudgens. Jordan also presented our Ruby courses, and you can watch for more courses from him in the future.

Our new RESTful Services courses pick up where our last series released in September left off. Here’s a look at what’s covered in these latest courses:

RESTful Services: Install, JAX-RS and Jersey
You will get a brief history of RESTful Web Services and how they are integral to modern web applications. You’ll see how to setup your computer to begin developing JAX-RS and Jersey applications, specifically by leveraging Maven scaffold applications from the command line. Watch the course trailer to learn more:

RESTful Services: The Server and Client
