0:22 The payload here shows you what would be returned if this was a javascript call. In this case a JSON representation of the authors in our database.
0:33 I only wrote the get interface, but if you were doing a full rest API, the menu in the corner here would allow you to do posts,
0:39 puts and deletes to manage your interface. I've really only scratched the surface here.
