This autumn we’ve taken some great steps in APIOps:
Apidays Helsinki meetup in September featured a discussion on how specification standards like OpenAPI and especially the upcoming OpenAPI 3.1.0 help in automating and improving the API development presented by Marjukka Niinioja from Osaango, a recent OpenAPI initiative member
We also saw a hands-on demo by Tessa Viitanen, Techie Stories on using Hypertrace, an open-source platform for compliance with APIs developed by Traceable.ai. Tessa shows and leads the discussion on how to potentially use it for real-time monitoring and even compliance checks for APIs and distributed systems.
Tessa’s demo starts on the video at appr. 30 min.
In October, we had the first APIOps Cycles coffee break discussing with community members Meenakshi Khatri, Ikenna Nwaiwu, and Miguel Angel Muñoz on how they are using APIOps Cycles method to work with their teams and API products and how to use and potentially improve the method, for example, the design style guide. We even did a short hands-on session with one of the canvases in APIOps Cycles to show how it’s used. We simulated how a German team had worked on their payment APIs.
And last but not least we had a joint event with Dallas and Helsinki (and honestly, people from at least 3 continents) in October. We had a great panel with Emmelyn Wang, Bri Crow and Marjukka Niinioja answering audience questions and discussing what are the skills needed for API development and API Economy from a recruiting point of view and how does APIOps Cycles method help multi-disciplinary teams to develop better APIs with Lean startup, product management, and MVP spirit.
