While REST has enjoyed a decade of popularity and proliferation, we see a recent resurgence of RPC - mainly advocated and evangelised by large software companies such as Google and Uber.

Our industry has a tendency of going full circle on pretty much anything and everything so this is not exactly a surprise. But before adopting RPC - or any other hype for that matter - it is important to understand why it is making a comeback and what problems it is trying to address. And this is the exact topic we will address in this talk: we will review the RPC and REST, look at key arguments for using them and in the end we discussion gRPC, one of the main proponents of RPC comeback.
