API 2.0 Best Practices - API Product Owners and Developers Workshop

Today's organizations don’t ask whether to engage in application programming interface (API) programs, but how to achieve the business or operational objectives from them. 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 exercise will reinforce the best practices.

Join Red Hat, your peers, business and IT leaders at our API 2.0 Best Practices - API Product Owners and Developers Workshop on (Date and location.) During this full day event, you will hear from Steven Willmott Senior Director and Head of API Infrastructure at Red Hat who will discuss new development technologies and introduce new kinds of API solutions.

Customer Success

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.


Who should attend:

  • CXO’s and VP’s
  • Directors
  • IT Managers
  • Architects
  • Developers

What you can expect to learn at this event:

  • How application programming interfaces (APIs), combined with containers and integration, create highly effective software systems.
  • How APIs can be used to transform the internal IT landscape.
  • Benefits of combining with containers for effective microservices strategies, and how they fit with integration technologies.
  • Red Hat’s 7 best practices for creating a successful API-first strategy After these informative discussions, we would like you to join us for a networking happy hour where you will have the opportunity to discuss with your peers and Red Hat experts on real world examples of how you can achieve continued success with an API strategy in place.
