The API mindset is thinking API-first, building the API before the website and the applications to deliver the same service to all channels via a unique interface.
The API mindset is thinking API facades, defining an interface contract to refactor the technical debt and decouple the IT monolith into smaller services.
The API mindset is thinking API management to always make better decisions by knowing exactly which service is used, by whom, where and how many times, so you can pilot your architecture and your business.
The API mindset is not about a technology, an architectural style or an IT project. It is about leveraging the internal energies to make companies think bigger, deliver faster, and be more resilient.
At APIdays Zurich, during 2 days, we will explore this API mindset, as well as the technical and business aspects of the API thinking.
Day 1 will be dedicated to preparing yourself to the API mindset: API architecture, API design, API Security, API culture and business models.
Day 2 will revolve around implementing the API mindset: API lifecycle management, API development, API testing, API monitoring, API discovery and API versioning and API monetization.
