API Design is a Gateway Drug for API Governance

Let’s talk a little about what API governance is and what it means to teams across a variety of enterprise organizations. For most organizations API governance begins with providing API design guidelines for API developers spread across teams, helping them deliver more consistent APIs across different platforms. Let’s explore some of the fundamentals of API governance, and understanding how API specifications like OpenAPI help in defining, implementing, and reporting upon how governance is (or isn’t) being applied. Once we’ve covered the basics, we can work to expand upon the most common notions of what API governance is, and look at how GitHub, Postman, and how other commercial and open source tooling can play a role in helping govern not just the design of APIs, but also how teams define, collaborate, and move APIs forward along a standardized API lifecycle.
