REST APIs with Intersystems technolgy

Hello developers, I'm a newbie to Intersystems technologies and I started to work with Caché and Ensemble, and to be more specific I'm working with systems integration. In a scenario where I need to develop new software from scratch, would it be better to develop this new software using REST APIs? Does anyone have any recommendations about courses?

Here is some useful documentation.

You're going to want to make a class that extends %CSP.REST and set up an application that uses that class as its dispatch class. You'll have a URL map in that class to tell IRIS or Cache what to do with the request. Depending on your specific application, you might also want to get familiar with using %request and %response in that process.

I've used Cache/IRIS Native Provider, but recently I'm moving all my apps to REST. It is OS/IDE independent and commonly used. Cache/IRIS REST API services are very efficient and very easy to use. Recommended.
