Platforms, Products, and People: The Power of APIs​

Our theme is Platforms, Products, and People: The Power of APIs.  APIs are the glue that binds together the nodes in many networks—whether those nodes are businesses, customers, government agencies, citizens, developers—networks deliver value that is exponentially greater than the sum of their parts.

Once again, apidays dives into the business and technology of APIs. We look at digital transformation, new business models, building communities, developer experience, software frameworks, cloud-native architecture, and hear plenty of lessons from experience.
