PRO TALK: You can’t Publicly Expose Legacy Application APIs, Can You?
Ford Motor Company is going through a transformation of its business and IT by using APIs. As with many large companies there are disparate systems which present many challenges to transforming to an API architecture. These challenges include consolidating data from several regional systems providing essentially the same data, offering a single authentication and authorization mechanism, integrating cloud and internally hosted solutions, handling differences between expected API *-ilities vs the backend systems designed *-ilities, and cloud PaaS solutions while avoiding cloud vendor lock in. This presentation will highlight some of the architecture patterns used to address these challenges.

PRO TALK: IoT and the Connected Kitchen: Learnings from the Restaurant Tech Revolution
Today, consumer expectations for automation and efficiency are higher than ever, and in a world where we expect on-demand everything — television, meal delivery, car rides — businesses cannot afford to be slow. In response, businesses have embraced the digital revolution and are thinking through the lens of trends like AI, the IoT, and data, to streamline operations and increase efficiency. At this year’s API World, Ming-Tai Huh, Director of Partnerships at Toast — the tech company that helps restaurants modernize with mobile, cloud-based operations — will discuss the evolution of these trends, leveraging innovative use cases and opportunities from the restaurant industry to inspire on demand, connected experiences across industries. Ming is always looking ahead to what’s next in dining out (or ordering in). As the leader of Toast’s strategic partnership program, he has a unique point of view on the IoT in the restaurant space, and how digital services, APIs and the cloud are connecting the physical and digital world to shape the future of restaurants. At API World, Ming will share his expertise on how technology has revolutionized the customer experience in the restaurant industry specifically, and how interconnectivity-innovation will shape tomorrow’s restaurants, highlighting Toast’s data-driven insights to shed light on what the future of smarter restaurants will hold. These insights will highlight how industries can leverage technology to think big and will serve as inspiration for leaders just beginning to explore the realm of what’s possible in the connected, on-demand era.

PRO TALK: Lessons Learned in Using IoT Devices in Industry
The majority of enterprises are using and implementing public cloud infrastructures and emerging patterns such as microservice architectures in order to build scalable, connected systems. These systems support new demands on businesses as they move from traditional software models to providing Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platforms, building Internet-of-Things (IoT) solutions, and supporting mobile application development and integration. This will discuss lessons learned over the course a long term consulting engagement for a Internet-of-Things solution. The session will discuss the ups and downs of the project, mistakes made and also the successes. Attendees should leave the session with best practices to help with developing the following aspects of an Internet-of-Things system: Environment Provisioning & Config Management Integration frameworks in the cloud Device authentication Messaging from Devices.

PRO TALK: Using APIs to Construct an Enterprise-grade IoT Environment
The Internet of Things is no longer just about connecting singular consumer devices. Now developers need tools to quickly deploy their own devices and sensors, manage network connectivity at massive scale, broker and exchange data securely with 3rd parties, and perform actions based on exceptions in that data. In this session, attendees will learn how organizations use APIs to construct their own enterprise-grade IoT environment for their themselves and their customers. Key Learnings from attending this session: - Learn how organizations use APIs to construct their own enterprise-grade IoT environment for their themselves and their customers - Understand how to quickly deploy your own devices and sensors, manage network connectivity at massive scale, broker and exchange data securely with 3rd parties, and perform actions based on exceptions in that data - IoT in the enterprise is evolving and changing at such a rate, that knowledge of how to manage a network of multiple connected devices at once is critical to remaining competitive and continuing to innovate - Understanding the considerations that must be taken into account when deploying an IoT solution, and an understanding of the tools required, so that real business relevancy can be extracted from data.

PRO TALK :Blockchain and the Internet of Things
This session discusses how to use Blockchain and the Internet of Things for several uses cases including end to end real time supply chain visibility, supply chain reliability, and other use cases. For the supply chain visibility use case, a manufacturer utilized production IOT sensors to monitor products in the supply chain and then published the sensor information to a blockchain so that the data can be secured and can not be repudiated or altered in the future. A logistics services provider, manufacturer, supplier, and others participated in the blockchain and were able to monitor the status of the product as it moved through the supply chain.

PRO TALK: 5 Pitfalls & Best Practices for API Quality & Security Testing
Today, REST APIs power most modern applications. Despite the risks of low-quality and insecure APIs, many application teams neglect API testing and focus on UI front-end testing only. The challenge that software development teams face when testing API’s lies with the code needed to write the logic behind tests, which are often hard to maintain and debug, as well as the tedious work involved in preparing datasets. In this session, you will learn about the common pitfalls and best practices around API test automation. Learn about the common ways to standardize API testing, prepare and share reusable datasets and how to integrate testing into CI/CD to ship code faster and with confidence. You will also learn about the various API security testing techniques including fuzz testing, command injection, unauthorized endpoints, and parameter tampering.
