I wiki'd it and my mind was blown. I suppose the process of defining it comes with what angle of perception the learner is coming from.
I know some PHP and some MySQL.
I can store stuff, and echo stuff. Loop through arrays and make session and cookie variables. Oh yeah, send emails too. These tid bits of knowledge can get one surprisingly far, but I'm still lost when it comes to the meaning of "RESTful". Can someone explain it to someone with my background?
