If you’re a tech company, you are likely publishing or consuming API’s already. API World is the first large-scale conference and expo with the goal of organizing this new API Economy. The API World 2016 Conference and Expo was created with the mission to be neutral and facilitate connections, knowledge, trust and business within the developer community of API providers and consumers. If you are a coder, a startup or an enterprise that consumes or provides multiple APIs this is your event.
2016 Conference Tracks
API Microservices Conference
This 2-day conference inside of API World will get you 100% up to date on best practices in Microservices. Microservices are a rapidly expanding architecture for breaking down single “monolithic” APIs into many smaller API services. This can be seen as the next major leap of the API economy.
API Design Best Practices Track
API Design is no longer as simple as choosing a SOAP or RESTful architecture. Do you take an SOA or Microservices approach? How do you scale multiple independent services and make changes to the API without disrupting your API users? These are all questions facing API Design.
Get an introduction or take a deep dive into best practices in Hypermedia for your API design and strategy.
API Specifications Best Practices Track
Hear from industry leaders on the fine art of API Specifications. Who is the audience for my API? What is my long-term strategy for maintaining my API? How will my specifications evolve and how much detail do I need to publish?
Connected Home & Car APIs Track
As more of our world becomes connected to the cloud, there will be more opportunities to plug into our homes, cars, and world around us via API. What can developers do with home & car APIs – and what is the future of environment-as-platform?
Integrate 2016: Internet of Things Track
This thought leadership track asks industry leaders about the future of connectivity between cloud, data, sensors, mobile, and people. What new startup opportunities are possible with IoT APIs? What security challenges do we face when everything is plugged into the cloud?
API Strategy & Monetization Track
Why should a company publish an API? It may be a new business model, a driver for a developer ecosystem, or it may simplify a more archaic information exchange with customers or partners. This track aims to understand why companies should invest in APIs and how industry leaders monetize their APIs.
