Review what we have covered in this chapter.

In this chapter, we learned how to convert our initial workflow document into a rendered sequence diagram. That process included using the online dictionary as a guide when we resolved the data field names in our API to names commonly understood on the web. We also learned about the difference between resource state and transitions and the importance of identifying parameters when we create our API designs.

We covered the basics of the WebSequenceDiagrams (WSD) online editor, how to use it to generate sequence diagrams, and save these diagrams as PNG images. The diagrams are helpful during the design process and also aid developers when they convert the design into a working API.
