PRO TALK: Building Conversational Experiences
Conversational interfaces are quickly becoming an essential component of every service and product. Will we ever be able to talk to machines the way we talk to people? Science fiction says we will, but as an industry our early experiences have left a lot to be desired. In this talk we will explore the latest design and development techniques for building natural language interfaces. We will use the Google Assistant, Actions on Google and Dialogflow as example show cases to explore conversational user interface best practices.

PRO TALK: Data Feed Model in the Age of APIs
Various categories of the eBay data feeds provide details of purchasable items across marketplaces and product categories. They enable authorized partners around the globe to programmatically access huge selections of eBay items and curate the inventory of their choice. Real-time APIs and data feeds for bulk updates open the door to creating successful experiences for buying from eBay anywhere. By combining these capabilities, partners tailor integrations to meet their business needs and to optimize on their resources. Considering eBay scale, top challenges we faced were bringing data together from many different sources, nearly real-time data synchronization, and support for reconciliation to ensure data consistency. This presentation outlines approaches we took to enable partners to provide their users with a consumer-centric experience. Such experience gives opportunities to buyers to discover new products, find what they want, and purchase what they like.

PRO TALK: The Operating System for AI: How Microservices and Serverless Computing Enable the Next Generation of Machine Intelligence
AI has been a hot topic, but there has not been much discussion of the infrastructure and scaling challenges that come with it. How do you support dozens of different languages & frameworks, and make them interoperate invisibly? How do you elastically run abstract code from thousands of different developers with under 15ms overhead? In my time at Algorithmia, we’ve built, deployed, and scaled thousands of algorithms and machine learning models, using every kind of framework. We’ve seen many of the challenges faced in this area; in this talk I’ll share insights into the problems you’re likely to face, and how to approach solving them. In brief, we’ll examine the need for, and implementations of, a complete “OS for AI”: a common interface for different algorithms to be used and combined, and a general architecture for serverless ML which is discoverable, versioned, scalable & sharable.

PRO TALK: Deploy Microservices Confidently with Consumer-Driven Contracts
Consumer Driven Contracts is a testing paradigm that let API-consumers communicate to the API-providers how they are using their services. This talk discusses software testing, how and when to use Consumer Driven Contract, and how Consumer Driven Contracts can make developers more confident. It also includes live coding to show how to implement Consumer Driven Contracts using the Pact framework.

To increase the velocity and reduce the cost of microservices development, it is key to be able to build and deploy new versions with confidence that you don't break any dependencies. Microservices are easy to build and run, but they quickly become a tangled web of dependencies that slow down development and result in broken dependencies. Organisations that transition from a traditional monolithic design to a microservice architecture, will soon realise that it is hard to keep track of all dependencies. Consumer Driven Contracts is a testing paradigm that helps developers keep control on all dependencies in a distributed system and this talk will tell more about how to use it and show how to do so in a live demo.

PRO TALK: My App Broke and It's All the API's Fault
Utilizing a continuous integration pipeline reduces the risk of failure as code is updated for your application. However, evolutions to a codebase no longer represent all of the changes that a developer could make to an application. Modern development heavily depends on utilizing external APIs to speed up the time it takes to ship code; this creates additional risk of failure as an untested change to a 3rd party system can create unexpected downtime for your application. In this talk Shy Ruparel, developer evangelist at Contentful examines strategies to bring API management into your continuous integration pipeline and outlines how that enables your codebase to integrate, change, and play well with systems outside of your control.

PRO TALK: RTFM Read the Friendly Manual
The best API in the world is doomed to fail if it doesn’t have a proper support framework around it. A Reference Guide is a good start, but if you want to build a true community around your APIs, you need to approach this from a complete integration life-cycle perspective. This talk focuses on the strategies and tactics necessary to build an ecosystem around your API, using PayPal’s Merchant Integrations Platform as a use case study of how true end-to-end thinking turned its developer portal from a liability into a profit center. Topics covered will include: • Driving conversion through developer-friendly design. • Documentation (done the right way) • Implementing a tight feedback loop between API users and product development teams. • Positive and Negative testing strategies for your APIs • Challenges of integration testing environments • The importance of a Developer Relations program

PRO TALK: Event-Driven Microservices; Simplified Development with Reactive Rules
Reactive means- responsive to an action. In the context of microservices, it would imply- responding to an event, and keeping the rest of the services in the system running as-is. Microservices entail APIs, business logic, data handling, and integration with the rest of the system. What if putting those pieces together, while specifying the events driving the responses of the embodying microservices, was as easy as point and click? In this session, we will elucidate the development nirvana for microservices developers- with automated architecture, automated business logic, and declarative reactive rules.

PRO TALK: Emulators as an Emerging Best Practices for API providers
Modern software leverage a lot of external APIs, which raises several issues: how can development teams safely build and test their software when some components they rely on keep evolving. And what if some of these components are key for the whole software to even fire up. These are some of the challenges faced today by Cisco internal development teams, but also partner and enterprise developers using Cisco's software. The industry proposes two main strategies to circumvent these challenges: API Mocking, and Service Virtualization. Both of these strategies have pro and cons. I came up with the idea of proposing API emulators has a 3rd option. From another perspective, Serverless platforms are recognized to be unique as they are scalable and straightforward to use. It turns out that major industry vendors (Google, Amazon, Microsoft…) have invested to create Emulator as companions to their Serverless platforms, in order to attract, on-board and have developers adopt Serverless platforms. In this talk, I'll explain the motivation behind API emulators, in the perspective of DevOps, CI/CD, Development Processes, and Serverless/Microservices architectures. I'll illustrate the talk with several prototypes: - Mini-Spark: an Emulator for the Cisco Spark API which mimics the execution environment of the Cisco Spark Cloud platform - Tropo-Ready: an Emulator for Tropo Serverless Telephony platform, tied it to Visual Studio Code in order to reach to developer communities I'll dive into the details of the process to create such emulators, and elaborate on the consideration that Emulators are emerging as key components of API providers's strategy.

PRO TALK: How GraphQL Helps Solve Enterprise Sprawl
If you've worked at an enterprise company, you've likely got some horror stories about system architecture. Success and scale can come at a certain cost: dozens of apps calling dozens (or hundreds) of services, multiple different standards, documentation marked with a TODO since circa 2010, overwhelming technical debt... How are you supposed to deal with this? "Rewrite it from scratch" is a nice sentiment, but it's not exactly realistic. Even attempting to document the whole thing presents it's own series of problems. In this talk, we will explore how GraphQL is uniquely positioned to provide a solid, sane, incremental approach to solving these complex problems facing the enterprise today.

PRO TALK : Supercharging Self-Service API Integration with AI
Using an AI-Driven Model for Self-Service API Integration Developers must often build new applications that pull together multiple back-end services delivered via APIs. A new mobile app, for example, may need to connect to backend ERP or CRM systems using a variety of third-party APIs, which are then integrated and delivered as a new API that provides the mobile app interface. By applying machine learning to this process, developers can greatly increase the speed and reduce the complexity of API integration and management, empowering non-developers with the benefits of API integration. For example, with a machine learning model trained by integration pipeline metadata, analysts across the organization in different lines of businesses with varied skill sets can be presented with recommendations on API integration workflows, to automatically start selecting and assembling APIs to build new applications. This self-service model for API integration greatly increases the speed of new application development while following recommended best practices and reducing security and compliance risks. In this session, Ravi Dharnikota will outline the challenges of API integration in a modern cloud context and explain how developers can leverage machine learning to speed application development, reduce errors and improve security and compliance.

OPEN TALK: Reactive Cloud-Native Networking
The vast majority of enterprises are moving to the cloud, but few are prepared for networking implications of cloud-native architectures. For developers, handling service discovery, fault tolerance, load balancing, caching and coordination over the network and across many services is the stuff of nightmares. For businesses, getting this wrong can be the cause of astronomical cloud costs and high-profile outages.

RSocket is an open-source network protocol developed in collaboration with Netflix, Facebook, Pivotal and others that was designed to handle the challenges of communication between complex networks of services both within the datacenter and over the internet – extending to mobile devices and browsers. In addition to ultra-low latency RPC and flexibility in the underlying transport layer, RSocket provides session resumption, application flow control and predictive load balancing to protect both client and server resources from being overwhelmed.

In this session, Ryland will discuss how Netifi is leveraging RSocket to simplify the way enterprises build and operate cloud-native applications, dramatically reducing operational overhead and speeding development velocity by allowing developers to focus on their product instead of their network infrastructure.

OPEN TALK: Combine API and IAM into a Simplified and Secure Architecture
Cloud and SaaS based architectures are a necessary aspect modernizing today's world of interconnected technologies. APIs have become the primary connectors of the IT landscape.  With this transition to API communications, Identity and Access Management capabilities of authentication and authorization are moving to the API.  

However, modern API Management tools that typically exist providing API capability in these modern architectures are limited in their ability to integrate with IAM providers. In our presentation we will explore how to combine API and IAM capabilities into one simplified architecture to:
  • Extend IAM beyond just HTTP and REST based schemes
  • Connecting these API and IAM combined capabilities to legacy systems
  • Create repeatable and scalable integrations with minimal coding and minimal disruption
  • Reduce dependency on insecure and non-repeatable developer-centric adapter coding
  • User-based monitoring and tracking of all API communications

PRO TALK: The 4 Million Dollar API
We’ve all been involved with a project that wouldn't get out the door. It’s important to learn from our mistakes – especially the not-so-obvious ones that tend to get repeated. SmartBear’s Shannon Wallace discusses the traps to avoid – like moving to third party tools when in-house software will suffice – when building APIs so that products can be released in record time with the high quality that is expected by the company and customers. She references an API that took over three years to develop without seeing the light of day. With six developers working on the API for over three years, the API has now cost over 4 million dollars to build. Shannon provides helpful tips associated with each roadblock encountered while building this API.

CANCELLED: APIs as Products | How Good Are My APIs?
Around four years ago, we began the journey at PayPal to transform all of PayPal’s core capabilities into a platform of discoverable, well-encapsulated, reusable API-driven products. We have used a customer-oriented approach to go from a very monolithic and siloed architecture to a much more loosely coupled set of over 150 services with well designed, modern APIs. We framed this transformational exercise as an organizational change initiative, with the goal of bringing a fundamental shift in how we design and build APIs. We made it a priority to identify and serve all key “customer” constituencies – developers who design and build APIs, developers who create innovative applications using these APIs, as well as the executives who support these efforts. This mindset influenced the strategy, the processes and the tools that we put together, our communication with the stakeholders, and the definition and measurement of success. An unflinching focus on developer experience and satisfaction has been key to our success, and it continues to shape how we manage this transformational program today. While every company has its own unique culture and challenges, many of the very valuable and insightful lessons that we have learned, and the approaches that we have utilized, are applicable to other companies that are trying to chart the same course.

FEATURED TALK: Data APIs Don’t Discriminate
The exploding API economy, combined with an advanced analytics market projected to reach $30 billion by 2019, is forcing IT to expose more and more data through APIs. Business analysts, data engineers, and data scientists are still not happy because their needs never really made it into the existing API strategies. This is because most APIs are designed for application integration, but not for the data workers who are looking for APIs that facilitate direct data access to run complex analytics. Data APIs are specifically designed to provide that frictionless data access experience to support analytics across standard interoperable interfaces such as OData (REST) or ODBC/JDBC (SQL). Consider expanding your API strategy to service the developers with open analytics in this $30 billion market.

What do oBike, a bicycle rental company, Instagram, and the IRS have in common? Answer -- hackers used APIs to access their customers sensitive information forcing these organizations to announce breaches. Although these API attacks were exposed, most API-based attacks go undetected these days – particularly attacks that used compromised credentials. API cyberattack examples and the techniques used by hackers to breach APIs will be discussed. It will also review how AI-based security solutions can effectively stop these attacks and provide deep visibility into your API sessions for forensic and compliance reporting. Topics covered include: - API cyberattack trends - Review of recent API attacks - Today's API security gaps - API Deception and API Honeypots - Leveraging AI for attack detection - Building reports with detailed traffic insight for any API - Best practices for securing APIs

PRO TALK: API Security: When OAuth Is Not Enough
Given the popularity of APIs and microservice based application development, it is no surprise that API security is also a topic of great interest. OAuth is the most common API security standard in use, but it is not a one-size-fits-all proposition. This session will illustrate where OAuth limitations can be addressed by adding in the complementary functionality of the attribute-based access control (ABAC) standard. ABAC, OAuth and OpenID Connect standards can work together in meeting the broadest range of security requirements when sensitive or regulated data is accessed via APIs, providing a more comprehensive security formula than when using OAuth alone. Jonas and Gerry will explore the details of how these standards integrate, describe benefits of the approach, and will provide a live demonstration.

PRO TALK: Don’t Forget the Data When Embarking on Your Journey to Service Meshes
You are preparing to embark on a journey to service meshes. You have a full pack: Docker containers, Kubernetes orchestration, Istio/Envoy service mesh, and other essentials. You’re all set! Or are you? It’s no secret that sophisticated enterprises are using data to deliver new value and gain competitive advantage. As a result, applications and microservices produce, consume, and share massive amounts of data. Further, one of the common characteristics of a microservices architecture is the decentralization of data management, so data is distributed over a vast surface area. And of course all of this data needs to be controlled and protected for compliance with data security and privacy regulations such as PCI-DSS, HIPAA, and GDPR. What does this confluence of data-related trends mean for your journey to service meshes? An enterprise-class service mesh must account for data. For example, what data stores exist in the mesh? Where is the data located? What types of sensitive data are in the mesh? How is the data secured? Who is accessing the data? Before you start your journey to service meshes, learn how you should include a data-centric approach in your essentials from the beginning.

August KEYNOTE: "Knowing the Client: Building Different APIs for Different Purposes"
Of course, all IoThings need APIs – otherwise, they'd just be Things. One of the major benefits of IoT is that the interface and device are separated – you don’t need to build a physical keyboard interface into the device to control the Thing. Now, you can use mobile and Web technology to control and monitor devices so how well you designing and developing your mobile application APIs becomes even more important. Attendees will learn: * The importance of segmenting your architecture * When to build a “generic” interface that considers the broad set of customers that might access the app or device vs a narrowly-focused API that serves a device-specific function * How to integrate segmented APIs into a coherent system * How to implement logging in order to understand the function and performance of segmented architectures * Some of the pitfalls of device-specific APIs and how to avoid them

OPEN TALK: Turn the Web Upside Down! (Hackathon Workshop)
Data flow in web applications is typically unidirectional, with browsers acting as data consumers and web servers acting as producers. But what if there were no restrictions about producing or consuming data or where your application had to reside, whether in a browser, on a mobile phone or in the cloud? What if it were as easy for a browser to communicate with another browser as it were for it to communicate with a web server?

Netifi is part of an open source initiative that includes pioneers in microservices — Netflix, Facebook and Pivotal Software — to develop the RSocket application protocol. RSocket is bi-directional with no restrictions about producing or consuming data or where applications must reside. This allows a developer the full range of possibilities no matter where the application is deployed. A browser can both fetch data and act as a server, serving requests from peers. A node server can pull live telemetry data from clients while at the same time serving their requests.
Netifi Proteus is a next-generation platform based on RSocket technology, providing API management, routing, service discovery and predictive load balancing while being able to run over standard transports (like TCP, HTTP/2 and WebSocket). This results in applications that are easier to scale, less failure-prone and easier to operate.

Attend our workshop for a demo of what is possible with the Netifi Proteus platform. Also, visit the Netifi booth (#105) at any time to get your own introduction to the Netifi platform, and receive login credentials for a hosted Proteus broker your team may use during the challenge. Then build your own application, either by extending the provided demo application or coming up with your own idea.

OPEN TALK: Building API-Driven Microservices
APIs are changing the way that developers build their applications, from simple websites and mobile apps to Internet of Things applications. At the same time, many developers are moving away from traditional monolithic application architectures to creating smaller microservices, each with its own API. Building microservices has benefits like increased speed to market, reduced potential for errors when deploying updates, and greater flexibility in application design. In this session, we’ll talk about how you can get started building API-based microservices by using Amazon API Gateway. We’ll cover API Gateway’s core features, including how it can help you create standardized APIs and its authentication and authorization features. By the end, you’ll have a foundation for how you can build public or private APIs for backends running on server-based or container-based applications and serverless applications.

PRO TALK: Ten Steps to Build a Strong Token Based API Security
Many developers are well versed with domain based application development. However when it comes to security, there are very few who can ascertain to the credibility of their API and Identity assertion systems. This talk targets the uncertainty around the functioning and utility of tokens in an API security landscape. It addresses the basic needs of a token infrastructure and what would it take to build one. This talk aims to help developers embrace security and identity as part of their tool chain and remove the skepticism around building their own API security. The developers should be able to use this discussion as a launchpad for building their own API authentication systems. This is a unique talk as many companies closely guard the secret of how their token infrastructure functions.,Being the lead architect for eBay Identity and having hand crafted the infrastructure which powers eBay's entire API stack authentication, Senthilkumar is driving the vision for Identity architecture for the next generation of services and uniquely poised to help developers with the talk to understand the nuances of API security and token infrastructure.

OPEN TALK: Hybrid Data Connectivity via REST API for Cloud/On-Premise Data Sources (Hackathon Workshop)
As APIs continue to explode, each organization exposes its own unique REST/SOAP/Bulk APIs for consuming their data. And some of them also come up with their own unique query language such as ROQL (Oracle Service Cloud), SOQL (Salesforce), etc. This makes it difficult for an enterprise and its development team to be able to learn and code against all these different APIs.

This is where OData is very useful. OData advocates a standard way of implementing REST APIs that allows for SQL-like querying capabilities using these RESTful APIs. OData is essentially SQL for the web built on top of standard protocols – HTTP, JSON & ATOM – while leveraging the REST architecture style.

In this workshop for the Progress hackathon challenge, you will be learning what OData is, how you use it and how you generate OData using Progress DataDirect Hybrid Data Pipeline for any data source for your hackathon project.

PRO TALK: Business of APIs: API Monetization
APIs are one of the primary enablers of a massive transformation in business models. Today's most popular consumer services (e.g., e-commerce, ridesharing, streaming media) would not be possible without APIs. Businesses also rely on APIs for critical capabilities (e.g., communications, payments, logistics) and interfacing with governments (e.g., tax authorities). Almost every company is becoming a technology company, and tomorrow's software developer will not write a single line of code without checking first to see whether they can access the capability they need through an API. Technology companies will unbundle software into discrete services (e.g., stripe payments, Twilio messaging, yaas.io commerce) and companies in other industries will race to make their products configurable (e.g., appliances, vehicles) and capabilities consumable (e.g., production, transportation) via API. Anything that can be exchanged via API will be, and APIs will become the highest volume channel for delivering many of the world's most consumed services (+$200B of purchases will be made via API by 2020). The impact on the economy will be massive (+$5T of economic activity will be API enabled by 2020). This session will provide business and technology leaders with best practices and leading examples, so they can define a winning API monetization strategy and take advantage of this opportunity.

PRO TALK: Glooing and Sqooping your Monolith-Microservice-Serverless Environment
Transitions from monolith to microservices are hard. While the number of blogs and books suggesting strategies to address this problem have grown exponentially, the essential tooling has improved slowly, with limited accessibility to developers.

To change this situation we at Solo.io developed Gloo, a platform to hybridize (or "glue") monolith-microservice-serverless environments and Sqoop, a codless graphQL server. 

Gloo enables multi-architecture and multi-cloud applications, by providing a suite of features to allow “glueing” components from any cloud (AWS, Azure, Google) and any backend (Kubernetes, Serverless, Consul, traditional VM) into a single user-facing API. 

Sqoop aggregates data from multiple backend sources into a single GraphQL API (with zero code written by the user).

Both projects are built on top of the Envoy proxy, and integrates out-of-the-box with other open-source projects including NATS, OpenTracing and more.

In this session, we will learn about Gloo, Sqoop and other open-source projects from Solo.io, and discover how its extensible architecture offers solutions to a broad range of use cases. Warning: lots of live demos will be shown.

OPEN TALK: Improving the Demand Side of AI market
Training AI in-house is often infeasible as it requires a critical mass of talent and data, and has high R&D risks. For Cognitive AI, like machine translation and speech recognition, hundreds of pre-trained and adaptive models are already available on the market via APIs from many vendors. Their performance varies case by case and change often. Their prices are 100x-200x times different, hence a wrong choice may be a complete miss.

In this talk, we argue that the only way to go is to evaluate and continuously optimize AI vendor portfolio and introduce our vendor-agnostic demand-side API platform for AI.

Communication is an important human interaction. However, when you are not physically present with the other party, it can be difficult to stay connected. To bridge this gap between users, a widespread of popular apps are adding some form of Real-Time Communications (RTC). In fact, there are over 1.5 billion minutes of audio/video logged weekly from just Chrome Web users. That does not include mobile applications and other desktop/mobile browsers. From Social to Healthcare to E-Commerce, more app developers are looking to add further engagement and increase interactions with their user base. RTC not only helps users communicate with one another but also enables apps to monetize by adding premium features.  Let’s explore why you should consider adding real-time communications in your application today.

KEYNOTE: Making Great APIs
You’ve designed, tested, documented … and now you have a great API. Now what? In this talk, Abhinav will review his perspective on the best ways to take that great API, get it into the hands of developers, and become part of the API eco-system. Many of these tips start with the API itself: is the design developer-friendly? Is the API documentation useful, accurate, and kept up-to-date? Some are related to ongoing communication and updates: how often is the API updated, and how are changes communicated? Some are marketing-focused - where to be included: lists, marketplaces, exchanges? While focused on promoting a public API, many of the tips in this talk apply to private and internal APIs, which comprise the majority of APIs used today.

If software is eating the world, APIs are the #1 enablers. The use of APIs for integration/ automation has skyrocketed with the number of apps used in support of business functions. At Workato, as the leading API automation platform, we work with 1000s of APIs ranging from joyful, to downright painful. As consumers of APIs, we have a different perspective and in this session we share some of the lessons learnt in the hope that it is useful for API developers, and on a more selfish note, a cathartic experience for us.

OPEN TALK: One API for 3.9 Billion Mailboxes
There are 3.9 billion email inboxes, calendars, and address books. Between them are trillions of connections, and enough data to run the businesses and lives of nearly everyone on the planet.

At Nylas, we see application developers with thousands of ideas to improve email, and thousands more to improve existing apps with this data. However, email is fraught with 45 years of feature creep, protocol complexities, proprietary implementations, and security concerns we are continuously reminded of. It is a great challenge to make that data securely, easily, and universally available.

In this session we demonstrate how we can unify a vast suite of competing and proprietary mailbox protocols and access them securely through a modern API. This API not only makes mailboxes and order of magnitude easier to access, it also allows for modern security measures, and extended capabilities.

We believe applications are more powerful, contextual, and insightful when they use APIs to integrate email, contact, and calendar data. We believe in the power of APIs to connect the great information centers of the world and strive to see the world’s largest communication base be part of that information flow.

CANCELLED - PRO TALK: Building Blocks Using Lamden’s API’s
Making a blockchain from scratch is no simple task. In fact, Bitcoin, Litecoin, ZCash, and Dash all share 90% of the same code for this very reason. We’re looking to show people how easy it is to develop and create new custom blockchains and apps. We want to show the full power of Lamden. For this proposed session, we want to dive into Lamden’s unique smart contract application to develop distributed applications which includes blockchain. This technical session will show developers how to build your own blockchain from the ground up with Lamden’s extensive customizable tools written in Python. What is Lamden? Lamden is focused at being the first end-to-end development suite for blockchain applications. We do not focus specifically on smart contracts on a pre-existing system, but rather creating new and custom blockchains and decentralized systems that are not encompassed within the application space of smart contracts. Those who know a thing or two about smart contracts know that there is a limited subset of what they can do. The tools that Lamden is making supersede that subset and expose a development environment wherein any type of decentralized application can be developed. Lamden is an open source Python-based blockchain network and development suite. Our blockchain was written entirely in Python and will be released, for free, to the community near the end of the year. Lamden's goal is to put easy to use blockchain tools in the hands of developers. We’re looking to showcase our emerging technology for a technical workshop at this year’s APIWorld Conference.

OPEN TALK: Trillo - A Full Stack, Low-Code Platform for the API Economy
Success in the API economy is contingent upon applications that can be quickly assembled by integrating new and existing services. To support the agility of businesses, they should be flexible and support accelerated deployment. Strong security is a critical requirement of these applications due to distribution over the internet. Finally, they should be readily accessible from devices of varying form factors.

This session presents a novel platform for building such modern applications with much less code. By following principles of model-driven architecture (MDA) and serverless computing, Trillo accelerates construction and deployment of applications on public and private clouds. A serverless and model-driven application is also flexible for making changes. A serverless and model-driven application is inherently flexible, thereby making it straightforward to adapt to changing requirements. Trillo covers all aspects of application development, such as security (inspired by Beyond Corp), API gateway, data access, microservices, serverless functions and responsive UI design. Trillo's visual environment brings everything together.

PRO TALK:The role of bits in the world of cars: How APIs are shaping the ability of automotive companies to compete
It is the world of atoms that has traditionally been the driver for the excitement around cars. A timeless design, an energetic engine, or a comfortable interior. Today, the headlines around cars around driven by bits, not atoms. Car manufacturers and their suppliers are challenged to upgrade their IT infrastructures. New entrants do not carry the baggage of legacy IT systems and technology products from the consumer space set customer expectations the digital abilities of today’s and tomorrow’s cars. As the convergence of bits and atoms drives the roadmap of the automotive giants, digital services are increasingly playing a central role in connecting companies with new or established partners, both from the traditional industry as well as outside of the traditional boundaries of car manufacturers for instance in the home elec- tronics, service delivery, or smart cities space. Partnerships to deliver a novel, electrifying new experience for drivers and riders as cars are becoming a beacon of information and entertainment. These new partnerships will largely be facilitated by digital services. APIs are the means of choice to enable those service—with open questions today around business models, legal constructs, as well as data security and interoperability. This talk is set to answer some of those open questions around APIs in automotive.

There are plenty of examples of "designing” an API, but most fall short on implementation and maintenance.  In order to consistently scale consumer-focused design of APIs across an organization we must first change perspective on development practices.  Defining and designing to the needs of consumers results in a more useful API and brings efficiencies to the organization.  Companies of all sizes will benefit from creating an API design experience that works for them and for their consumers.

OPEN TALK: Connect Everything, Securely
According to Gartner, “by 2022, API abuses will be the most-frequent attack vector resulting in data breaches for enterprise web applications.” Explosive growth of API usage, the need for multiple API management and integration products, and inadequate security solutions have combined to create downright scary risk scenarios for organizations. How can risk brought upon by digital transformation be limited?  Tim Arvanites, CTO of aapi, will explore the current state of the API and how a hybrid integration platform with adaptive technologies, predictive analytics, and threat intelligence can be used to mitigate risk associated with APIs, while increasing productivity, well into the future.

PRO TALK: How to Create and Manage APIs Sustainably for Maximum Integration
Enterprises are increasingly realizing the value of APIs, with a new survey finding that nearly two-thirds of companies are creating APIs for customer, employee and partner use. However, a whopping 90% rely on developers to create these APIs manually, and only 30% use API management tools to manage them. This means that the vast majority of enterprises are missing out on rapid deployment and scalability benefits while eating away at their IT resources. In this talk, Mohammed Attar, VP of Software Development for SendGrid, will cover how enterprises can create and manage APIs sustainably for increased speed, deployment and security, while placing added significance on the importance of API integration to a successful, scalable business strategy and development in today’s increasingly connected technology landscape.

PRO TALK: Securing API using Google’s BeyondCorp Model
Due to the advent of mobile and cloud technologies, customers and remote workforce are accessing applications across the perimeter of the enterprise. This is stretching the conventional perimeter security with additional attack vectors. Once firewall is breached, the attacker may acquire unlimited access. To deal with the new paradigm, Google implemented a new enterprise security model called BeyondCorp. The central tenets of BeyondCorp are: 1) Entitlements of a service are granted based on the identity of the user and device. 2) Internet and intranet are equally untrusted networks. 3) Access to services must be encrypted. API gateways currently use OAuth2 to validate clients’ entitlement. Using BeyondCorp model, API security is extended to the tuple of user, device and roles. This talk covers how to implement high performance BeyondCorp model in API gateway. It will also discusses required backend components such as; authentication including single sign on (SSO), device inventory, RBAC/ ABAC service, audit and alert services. RBAC and ABAC matrix can be complicated when a large number of APIs, users and devices are considered. This talk provides guidance on how to make it easy for administrators to create this matrix. Finally, it discusses a plan for gradual migration to BeyondCorp

PRO TALK: Building a RESTful API for the Ethereum Blockchain
Reductively speaking, the blockchain is basically a linked list. A linked list is not a great web API. Nor is it very efficient for subset searches or filters. In short, it's not anything like the web APIs that we're used to from the past decade plus. Some tools exist: Infura, Etherscan, Web3, Geth, Parity. None of them are REST. None of them work the way that web developers are used to. What do we do about that? Stick the Ethereum blockchain into a relational database and build a RESTful API on top of it! 

It's called Eefio. It's free, unthrottled, and open source. It is compatible with Geth and Parity as a backend. It is not JSON RPC. It draws upon Twilio and Stripe as inspiration: humane, readable, support for many programming languages and frameworks, great documentation in multiple human languages. This talk will tell the story of building it. The challenges, opportunities, solutions, and work left to do.

PRO TALK: API-As-A-Product- The Cultural Challenges and implementation
Although API-as-a-Product philosophy is generally understood and has been talked about for last few years; challenges remain in embedding such culture within most organizations. Long accustomed to products being something that are either “visual” or “revenue generating” – it is a cultural change to think of either external or internal APIs as bonafide products in their own right.
This talk aim to share learnings of a multi-year journey of embedding API-as-a-Product philosophy within PayPal with a goal to educate, inspire and provide a path for product managers, technologists to begin their own such journey.

PRO TALK: Only Good Users - Using Data-Intelligence APIs to Enhance Identity and Grow a Stable User Base
By 2020, more than 4 billion individuals will be using the internet. And this means, millions of new online accounts and users to manage, leaving businesses with several pieces of scattered user data to draw out customer information and preferences. Managing these preferences while keeping our fraudsters can be a tall task for any business, big or small. However, leveraging data-intelligence APIs can drastically streamline this process and ensure stable user growth, thanks in large part to a simple bit of data – the phone number. Enhanced with AI and Machine Learning, data-intelligence APIs built around user phone numbers can enable businesses to create an accurate customer profile that evolves with the user by relying on a variety of data attributes such as real-time location, subscriber data and online traffic patterns. In this presentation, Stacy Stubblefield, Co-Founder and Chief Innovation Officer of the leading global cloud communications company TeleSign (which works with 20 of the 25 largest internet brands in the world), will show how businesses around the world are adapting to the evolving identity landscape and using valuable customer insights delivered by single APIs to verify users and grow revenues. During this session, Stacy will show how to integrate data-intelligence APIs into user verification and communication workflows, how Machine Learning enhances this data and allows businesses to evolve with their users, and provide case studies of innovative solutions businesses have been able to build on top of phone number data. Armed with this information, attendees can walk away ready to create a smarter and safer online user experiences that ensures only good users are let in and they never want to leave.
