Microsoft updates Azure REST API guidelines 

Microsoft recently released major updates to its Azure REST API guidelines. This will help to drive greater consistency across the portfolio of Azure service APIs. This new level of consistency will benefit users that access Azure services through the REST APIs as well as users of Azure SDKs and Azure CLI.

The updated guidelines can serve as a reference when designing any REST API, with a focus on cloud-based applications and services. The new guidelines will help users: create more durable APIs, accelerate development, and yield cleaner, more consistent SDKs, whether the user is updating their existing API or creating a new one.
