APIs from the Edge to the Mesh

For a long time APIs have largely been an exercise at the edge of complexity. They provide an engaging interface to attract developers, perhaps an underlying platform to monitor their consumption, and a means for those interested in whatever drives our backend to manage that success. That type interaction demands a certain type of interaction. But what happens in a backend world of microservices? Do we really have the same API needs and flexibility concerns at the mesh that we do at the edge and how might we best address these two worlds going forward? I will present the case for edge, the case for the mesh and try to bridge whatever space we have between them: chasm or ditch.
