This week Scott and I interviewed Jeff Lindsay, the creator of the term webhooks and an avid promoter of the concepts. I love webhooks, we you'll know if you've read my post Beyond the API: The Event Driven Internet . Here's the IT Conversations write-up:
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.From IT Conversations | Technometria with Phil Windley | Jeff Lindsay

Listen up and give webhooks a try. They're very cool.
