APIs, Go, and RubyMotion

First, a few links I've picked up recently on API design and the Go language:

  • Best Practices for Designing a Pragmatic RESTful API

    "Now, the internet has no shortage on opinions on API design. But, since there's no one widely adopted standard that works in all cases, you're left with a bunch of choices: What formats should you accept? How should you authenticate? Should your API be versioned?"

  • How to learn Go

    "Trying to learn a new language is usually kind of confusing because you’re not really sure where to start so here’s my list of resources that helped me learn and deploy a production app in less than a week."

  • Learn Go the hard way

    "In this book, I'd like to show you how easy Go is to learn, how well it combines the strengths of both C and Python, and how it makes writing concurrency and parallelism much easier than in most other languages."

And since I've just bought a RubyMotion license in order to try and put together some kind of app as a summer project, I've collected quite a few links to catch up on RubyMotion:
