Unfortunately I won't be at API Days / APIStrat Berlin 2015 later this week.
But if you're there, check out my colleague Philipp Schöne's talk on the
"APIs, Data & Intelligence" track. Details are:
LOCATION: Room: Caroline & Wilhelm v. Humboldt
DATE: April 24, 2015
TIME: 10:50 am - 12:30 pm
I know Philipp has a great presentation lined up, and the format of the event
ensures a lot of great discussion. Sad to miss it (and to miss the
opportunity for some great German beer afterwards too!)
On May 5 in Philadephia, Axway is running an "Innovation Forum" focusing on
integration technologies including APIs. It's a free event which you can sign
up for online, and we've some great speakers lined up. I'll be down in Philly
for the event, and I'm really looking forward to it.
So what is an Innovation Forum? It's a way to get practitioners together to
share best practices, network, and discuss the latest technologies. Expect to
hear much discussion on microservices, on the latest API security breaches
(and how to avoid them), and on Internet of Things.
On the API front, we h... (more)
All Around the World - API Workshops for OAuth, Mobile, REST
Here at Axway, we regularly run API Workshops worldwide which bring together
API practitioners in discussion, debate, and exposure to technologies such as
OAuth 2.0, API developer portal design, and identity.
And when we say "worldwide", we mean worldwide.
To illustrate this, my colleague Philipp Schöne has created an interactive
map on CartoDB of the API Workshops over the past year, with photos of each.
All that's missing is a backing track of Daft Punk's "Around the World" :)
Each API Workshop has been eventful in its ow... (more)
The new Axway website is full of great nuggets of information. For example,
check out this case study for integration with NASDAQ, using Axway's API
Gateway. The customer is Storebrand, an insurance and savings company with
1.8 million customers in Norway and Sweden.
NASDAQ interface: For its private customers in Sweden, Storebrand implemented
an SSO integration with NASDAQ, the largest U.S. electronic stock market,
which lists 3200 companies and trades some two billion shares per day. The
Axway API Gateway solution enables customers who are logged on to the
Storebrand site to di... (more)
This morning I was looking at the (excellent) API documentation of one of
Axway's API Management customers, and I thought I'd write a quick blog post
about a simple and sometimes under-used Best Practice. In this case, the Best
Practice is to include an "echo" operation. This makes it easy to test the
API (along with the in place testing, which you also see with the "Try it
out" button). It's simple to setup an "echo" endpoint using Axway's API
Management (just drag in a "Reflect" onto the canvas, it's as simple as
