  • LaunchAny Homepage
  • Recent keynote: “APIs, Microservices, and Serverless: The Shape of Things to Come”

    Topic 1 - Welcome back to the show; It’s been a while, let’s reintroduce you to our audience. Tell us about the types of things you work on.

    Topic 2 - There are so many things going on with APIs these days, sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. Do you have a framework that you use to help companies think about APIs? * *

    Topic 3 - Are there different perspectives that developers have if they are dealing with APIs for monolithic applications vs. microservices applications vs. external APIs?

    Topic 4 - What is some of thinking around dynamically changing environments (e.g. DevOps, Agile) and APIs (versioning, testing changes, etc.)?

    Topic 5 - What are some of the more critical things that you’re always reinforcing and educating people about APIs?

    Topic 6 - We’re seeing more companies emerge that just deliver APIs as part of an ecosystem of services. How has this changed application development?
