Submission + - A Lean Approach to Creating an API

bkirkby writes: I picked up a project a few months back where I needed to extend the schema to an API we had exposed for a partner to use. At first i was surprised to find the editing tool pushing JSON files to an S3 bucket and had assumed there was a separate process that was picking up those files and adding them to a database. As i dug into it further, i realized the architect of this solution was simulating a restful API by simply creating the proper directory structure and exposing the S3 bucket to the web. It was a fantastic quick hack solution for validating a partner relationship.
