API 2.0 Best Practices - API Product Owners and Developers Workshop
Join Red Hat for the API 2.0 Best Practices - API Product Owners and Developers Workshop on 2 August in Sydney to hear from Steven Willmott, Senior Director and Head of API Infrastructure at Red Hat, about how you can achieve your operational and business objectives with application programming interface (APIs) solutions and strategies.
This workshop draws on best practices for successfully applying APIs and covers Red Hat’s 7 best practices for running successful API programs. We don’t stop here, we walk the talk. The technical hands-on workshop will reinforce API best practice.
We want to make sure our customers are able to use our API in the way that works best for them. Plus, I care a great deal that our API is well-structured and well-documented. The 3scale API management solution just works. I’ve been able to set and forget it.KURT FREYTAG, HEAD OF PRODUCT, CRUNCHBASE
