Pain Points In API Development? They’re Everywhere

There’s an inherent tension for organizations doing API development: how to keep both your API developers as well as your infrastructure happy, at the same time. Decoupling front-end and back-end development allows parallel development, and helps keep your front-end, middle-end, and back-end efforts working asynchronously. This speeds progress, but requires far more – and far better – collaboration to be successful. Even an independent developer working with APIs requires good collaboration tools.
In this talk, Abhinav Asthana will provide tips on how to improve in API development using collaboration tools like executable API descriptions, API mock servers, and documentation. He will include specific examples of how companies (such as VMware, Coursera, and AMC Theatres) have used collaboration to attain more agile development, to onboard developers, and to ensure input from all participants/stakeholders.
