WebHooks are meant to do something. The concept of a WebHook is simple. It is an HTTP callback: an HTTP POST that occurs when something happens; a simple event-notification via HTTP POST. Developer Jeff Lindsay talks about what a WebHook is and how it works as a programming API.
Jeff reviews how WebHooks are being currently used and discusses the technical aspects of their purpose and their implementation.
Jeff Lindsay is a systems thinking hacker-philosopher. He builds, he explores, and is apparently “wired differently.” Obsessed with esoteric knowledge, he applies modern technology driven by an eclectic model of the bigger picture. He’s heavily involved in hacker culture, startup culture, web technologies and the indie game scene. With dozens of new and ongoing projects, his motto is “always be shipping.”
