As someone who's been using REST for 15 years and has no idea what it is or how it works, this series of articles by Dr. Elkstein are really nice. They break it down into simple language in small, easy to digest posts.
REST stands for Representational State Transfer. (It is sometimes spelled "ReST".) It relies on a stateless, client-server, cacheable communications protocol -- and in virtually all cases, the HTTP protocol is used. REST is an architecture style for designing networked applications.
