Microservices are the next major leap forward in the API economy. Microservices are a rapidly expanding, modern architecture for breaking single “monolithic” APIs into many smaller API services. This three-day conference inside of API World will get you 100% up-to-date on the best practices in Microservices.
API Design & Best Practices
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 and will be discussed in depth during this 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 are monetizing their APIs today.
