Battle tested API design

Workshop abstract

Well designed and performant API's are key aspects of good and reliable application systems.

Especially when kicking of an API system it is really hard to setup and define all boundaries that are necessary to build a futureproof API. Changes later on can be time consuming and of course expensive.

Therefore it is extremely important to plan the API design beforehand and to use best practices and patterns from the industry.

In this session I will guide the listeners through the creation process of an API and will introduce and explain all important parts that constitute a battle tested and robust API. Things like middleware layers, security tokens are only some key points that will be presented on stage.
