Session

Designing Event-Driven Architectures Using the AsyncAPI Specification

In the world of REST APIs, we're used to having a great variety of tools and specifications (Swagger, OpenAPI, RAML). This has enabled us to automate the generation of documentation portals, code, and also led to a bunch of excellent API management services like Apigee, Mulesoft, Kong, and many more.  

On the contrary, the world of event-driven architectures hasn't received much love until recently. With the growth of technologies like Kafka or RabbitMQ and architectures like microservices, organizations are starting to adopt event-driven architectures more and more.  

In this session, we'll go through the key points we learned about APIs and apply them to the event-driven or asynchronous APIs (yes, they're APIs too.) AsyncAPI instead of OpenAPI/Swagger, AMQP/MQTT/Kafka instead of HTTP, and publish/subscribe instead of request/response.  

At the end of the talk, you would have learned how to document, code, and test your event-driven architecture.

Building With Extensibility

Tuesday Nov 9 / 09:10AM PST

Extensibility isn't just making your endpoints public; you should think about how your product will be extended and enhanced by others before you write a line of code. Gain an understanding of why we want to build extensible products rather than just checking off a "public API" box....

A Standardized, Specification-Driven API Lifecycle

Tuesday Nov 9 / 10:10AM PST

API specifications like OpenAPI are often seen as just documentation, or possibly used for code generation--when in reality they have become much, much more. OpenAPI and AsyncAPI have emerged as the way API producers and consumers are engaging across the entire API lifecycle, beginning with...
