Promote Standards to Create Great APIs by Robert Wunderlich


When I moved from Development to Product Management, one of my first assignments was to create tools that helped developers build SOA services following prescribed patterns. Simply put, we had a "best practice" and we wanted to help developers leverage it easily and repeatedly. My main motivation was to lift the burden of compliance through automation. I still believe that automation promotes compliance.

Fast-forward to the present with microservices, and APIs, we see the need for a design-first approach with standards is even more critical than ever. This was one of the many reasons I was excited when Oracle acquired Apiary because I knew that Apiary enables teams to create great APIs.

A great example of this is presented in Creating the New: Adidas APIs from the Nordic APIs 2017 platform summit that took place in Stockholm, Sweden on October 11th of this year. Oldrich Novak from Adidas, and Zdenek "Z" Nemec from GoodAPI gave a great presentation about implementing a well defined approach to APIs.

I’d like to highlight some of the points from their session, but I really do suggest you find the time to watch it for yourself to learn even more. Read the complete article here.
