I just started working at a cloud hosting provider that's building an IaaS cloud service (think "Amazon") built specifically for Drupal. I've been given the task of researching and collecting feedback about what really matters to the Drupal community when it comes to web hosting and would be interested in your opinion. It would be great if you could share a little bit about your background and list the top three things that matter to you in a web host and why. All the feedback that we collect will be used to drive our product roadmap and hopefully build a great platform for the community to use.
Thank you for your help!

Announce page updates aurally
Many page updates are expressed visually through color changes and animations. In order to make page updates apparent in a non-visual way, Drupal provides the
aria-live element on the page. Text appended to this node is read by a screen-reading user agent.
Drupal.announce accepts a string to be read by an audio UA. You can also set a second parameter: the priority. Here are a couple examples:
Drupal.announce('Entering edit mode');
Drupal.announce('Please fill in your user name', 'assertive');
Drupal.announce('You look beautiful today.');
The two accepted priority values are
polite is the default.
I work for a web design company out of Atlanta called Army of Bees (armyofbees.com). In recent months we've been getting more work than we can handle, but we hate to turn it away.
As such, we're looking for Drupal freelancers who are interested in being contracted for work (and hopefully forming a lasting relationship). Tasks will involve getting a list of requirements for a Drupal site (usually brochure sites but sometimes a bit more complicated) and then setting up all the modules/views/pages/etc for the site. It'd be a bonus (though not necessary) if you can take an HTML/CSS template and apply it in a custom theme as well.
Compensation is going to be $40/hour (which is negotiable), but we prefer doing projects on an estimated cost basis. So we will ask you how long it will take to do a project, and then compute your compensation for it based on that amount.
If you have any of the above skills and it sounds like you might be a good fit, please fill out the Freelance form on our website (www.armyofbees.com/freelance) to send us your info!
Thanks so much, and we hope to hear from you!

REST architecture basics
NOTE: This covers configuration for the EntityResource, a REST plugin that core provides for content entities. Development of other REST services is covered in the Develop for Drupal guide.
What is REST?
Web Services make it possible for other applications to read and update information on your site via the Web. REST is one of a number of different ways of making Web Services available on your site. In contrast to other techniques such as SOAP or XML-RPC, REST encourages developers to rely on HTTP methods (such as GET and POST) to operate on site resources.
If you are new to REST, you can find out more about HTTP methods, and other REST topics such as media types, and hypermedia, in the More info on REST section.
REST in Drupal 8 Core
In Drupal 8 core, interactions with content entities are supported via a REST interface. The REST module is extensible, and modules that wish to offer other services can implement Resource Plugins. Such extension is not covered here.
By default, the supported HTTP methods for entities are GET, POST, PATCH and DELETE.
