Integrating #Drupal with a 3rd party service via JSON

Title says it all really, along with last minute http://BADCampUK.net organising I'm writing a module to integrate with a 3rd party service via JSON. Would love to swap notes with anyone who's done similar!

Use existing modules?

Have you taken a look at the possibilities of views data source or services. Doesn't look too difficult to pull off a RESTful api integration. I guess it depends on your requirements.

By #Drupal, do you mean the IRC channel?

Sorry!

I'm not really a module

I'm not really a module developer (yet), but have a client who needs something like this done. The 3rd party is Sqoot and their API is fairly straight forward. They prefer CORS integration but support JSONP. I'd be willing to help out in anyway I can, but this is new ground for me. Been working with Drupal since v2, but more in the site development and theming end of it.

Cheers,
Jason
