Enabling Business Networks

Apidays returns to the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on September 14th and 15th for its seventh edition in Australia. This year will be an in-person event! That’s right, join us in the spring sunshine for some long-delayed, appropriately distanced community building.

Our theme is Building Business Networks. 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.
