Attendees of this workshop will have the chance to get acquainted with APIs from two of the foremost authorities on the topic. Experts, Kin Lane, and our very own, Andreas Krohn, will give participants in this workshop a gentle, but complete introduction to APIs. The two will cover everything from what an API is to what they can be used for. They will provide an overview of available tools and discuss the impact on businesses. This workshop will provide an excellent basis for the information and presentations given during the regular proceedings of the conference.
