Presentation: "Web API DOs and DON'Ts"

Track: Web APIs / Time: Friday 15:50 - 16:40 / Location: Estrelsaal C7

Web APIs are have become ubiquitous nowadays -- there's hardly any internet-based service that doesn't rely on APIs to extend its reach beyond its own web site and, most importantly, into the mobile world.

In this session, I'm going to talk about common pitfalls and challenges encountered when designing, implementing, deploying and operating Web APIs and highlight a couple of best practices that help ensure your API strategy becomes a success.
