WORKSHOP: New Frontiers for Microservices
Microservices have moved well past the early adopter phase, and microservice architecture is now an increasingly popular software engineering approach for organizations of all size in all industries. This uptake has led to a new slate of challenges for enterprises wanting to move to microservices, and dealing with the resulting system complexity. Join this session to learn how established organizations are introducing microservices to their landscapes, including how they’re dealing with considerations like security, service boundaries, infrastructural capabilities, and cultural change.

WORKSHOP: API Integration with a Data Hub
For most organizations today, application integration is being solved with “point-to-point” solutions that spiderweb between apps and services. This is simply an extension of the legacy enterprise integration patterns we’ve seen for 2 decades. But with modern enterprise using more than 1000 cloud-based applications, this point-to-point model doesn’t scale and need to change. Enter Data Hubs. By focusing on the data you care about rather than the interfaces and APIs of your applications - your integration architecture is able to scale, while creating a governance and mediation layer. Data and application integration leaders should develop such a strategy to determine effective mediation of semantics, and to identify data sharing requirements across applications, constituencies and ecosystems.

WORKSHOP: Everything you Wanted to Know about Serverless but Were Afraid to Ask -- Containers, FaaS, and Event Architectures
In a world demanding an increasing amount of software-driven products, time-to-market is everything.  Serverless technologies and event architectures promise to dramatically reduce development time, reduce cost, and handle lots of the inherent scaling risks in today’s global apps.  But the Serverless hype is increasing, and it’s hard to know how to take advantage of these new superpowers.  How can you use these new technologies to launch your product quickly?  Todd Greene, PubNub CEO, along with Dan Rosanova, Principal Program Manager Lead at Microsoft, will discuss the three major categories of Serverless and illustrate design patterns to create the most popular modern applications.  They’ll also talk about some cool new offerings that are further easing the move to Serverless.

WORKSHOP: Beyond REST - Coursera's Journey to GraphQL
Coursera's platform is composed of hundreds of APIs, implemented across dozens of services by various engineering teams. Our client engineers have faced many challenges while using these APIs, especially around discoverability and assembly of data from various services. We’re working to solve these problems by migrating all client data access from REST to GraphQL. Our path to GraphQL is different than most -- instead of manually adapting each of our REST APIs for GraphQL, we built a dynamic assembly layer that unifies our distributed APIs into a single GraphQL endpoint and corresponding schema. This unified schema allows clients to access data from across our various services in a single query. In this talk, I’ll cover why we’re transitioning to GraphQL, share challenges and learnings from building our GraphQL assembly layer, and discuss a few open questions we have around designing APIs for simultaneous REST and GraphQL usage, and who owns the business logic in GraphQL.

WORKSHOP: Deliver SQL Access for Enterprise APIs
Database access is becoming increasingly complex as enterprise APIs deliver centralized data access with identity management, access control and complex transformations. This impacts enterprise analytics platforms that expect SQL access because the published enterprise APIs for data access are often engineered for application developers and return payloads in XML or JSON. This session will discuss best practices and lessons learned when extending your APIs with SQL clients (ODBC/JDBC) to include data engineers and data scientists for enterprise business analytics.

WORKSHOP: Master of the Domain - API Access Control in a Microservice Architecture
Since microservices has become a popular style of building distributed software systems, security—including access control for web APIs—has often been a secondary concern. A variety of different security mechanisms—many borrowed from previous software architectures—have been employed to address different pieces of the access control puzzle, resulting in an incoherent patchwork of approaches. In this talk, Rob Wilson reviews the pros and cons of current approaches, and proposes a unified, multi-platform approach to API access control in a microservice architecture.

WORKSHOP: Schema-first Development with GraphQL

GraphQL improves both your API’s performance and the performance of your team in general. Schema-first GraphQL development forces front- and backend teams to agree on a strict contract up front, enabling them to work quickly and efficiently while staying on spec. Danielle Man discusses the benefits of schema-driven development and shares lessons learned using GraphQL in production, building open source tools for the GraphQL community, and going from zero to GraphQL with two production applications.

This efficiency is enabled by great tools in the GraphQL ecosystem like GraphQL clients, data mocking systems, and GraphQL developer tools. If you design your schema up front, your backend teams have a strong spec to develop to and your frontend teams can start building components immediately. Danielle shares how her team was able to build a production app in less than three months using this approach and showcases how to leverage ecosystem tools in a GraphQL developer workflow.

WORKSHOP: Federated Graph Queries Over REST and GraphQL APIs
With the advent of microservices and the proliferation of APIs, even the simplest applications require significant API orchestration logic as they find the data they depend on scattered across an ever growing number of systems. Even with the newer protocols, developers still need to do a significant amount of heavy lifting. In this fun and thought provoking talk we will take a look at a new set of technologies, currently under development, that let developers easily combine data from multiple services exposed via RESTful or GraphQL APIs by writing declarative graph queries instead of code and delegating orchestration to a new kind of "query" engine - one that understands how to talk to data services as well as APIs. We will discuss the main shortcomings of the current state of the industry, explore the possible solutions space, understand (briefly) different techniques for automating data-gathering across distributed/federated systems and, finally, take a look at a couple of real world scenarios and working code. This talk will aim to be equal parts content and inspiration. We hope to spark interest in exploring higher level abstractions and protocols for publishing and connecting systems.

WORKSHOP: Low Code Microservices – Accelerating Ideas to Implementation
Today’s business environments demand speed and agility- the fundamental drivers of the microservices paradigm, and hence the resulting modern software architecture. A low code or no code approach to designing and implementing services can provide the edge needed to achieve that speed and agility – while heavily cutting down on the time and costs involved in the iterative software development process. The low/no code approach when implemented right – at various levels – API, business logic, integration of enterprise data – can help achieve efficiencies otherwise not imaginable through the traditional software development approaches. Call it disruptive, or innovative- this approach is here to change the way businesses and developers are used to looking at software services. In this session, we will discuss the ease of benefits of low/no code approach using a live demonstration.

WORKSHOP: APIs, Chains, & Graphs
Let’s face it, REST APIs can be problematic, and hypermedia hasn’t quite proven to be the answer we’ve looked for.  GraphQL has quickly become more popular offering a solution to the problems REST created - but opens back up the very problems REST was created to avoid (remember SOAP?).  But what if there was a way to take the best of both: enter API chains.  In this session we’ll take a look at the pros and cons of REST, GraphQL, and a new specification and library for chaining numerous resource calls into a single HTTP request.

Monolith Strikes Back - Forces Challenging a Transition to Micro-services Architecture
In this technical presentation, I will share challenges eBay has been facing during Marketplaces codebase transformation to a (micro)services oriented architecture. Monolithic codebase stack and direct database level integration still have its appeal and tend to be part of “path of least resistance” solutions when a business project faces timeline pressures. For a company of eBay’s size when it comes to number of developers, users, inventory and transactions and velocity of product changes required to stay competitive, there is no doubt that distributed execution and architecture is the right target. So why are opposite forces still so strong? Can the transformation implode and code monoliths re-appear? I will explain the approach eBay has taken on the transition, obstacles the architecture and development teams have seen in the past 5 years and will discuss options on how to address them.

This workshop will demonstrate how API Connect can become your tool of choice for such a job by connecting services from different worlds - Node.js, Swift on the Server, AI and Cloud.
 
The Node.js microservice will use Watson Speech-to-Text and Text-to-Speech, with Watson Conversation Service to deliver Voice UI and improved functionality. The workshop will also cover a Swift on the Server microservice management page utilizing IBM Kitura with Cloudant NoSQL DB backend -  all running on IBM Cloud. 

During the workshop we will show a TJBOT - a small Raspberry Pi-based robot - making an API call to the developed API and connecting it with an iOS device over the same API platform.

Accelerating the Enterprise. The intersection of APIs and Microservices.
Virtually all major business publications position APIs as tangible representations of digital resources. APIs have clearly become a first class element of digital business. In this context, yesterday’s technology-centric views of APIs not only miss the point but can put your company brand at risk. This talk discusses the implications of this reality across multiple business & technology dimensions and explores the synergies and distinctions between API & Microservice lifecycles.

Many enterprises that have adopted an API program struggle to figure out a way to consistently scale the program and approach across many different lines of business. The key questions they must ask themselves are how do you design APIs that are highly consumable? And how do you publish them in a way so they are discoverable?

This session will discuss the importance of treating an API like a product and thinking about the full lifecycle around it, from design to build, test, deploy, and manage, to ensure the API is consumed by the end user. We will also discuss how to create an app store-like experience for your employees, partners, and customers to ensure your APIs are easy to discover and reuse.

OPEN Talk: Data APIs Don’t Discriminate
The exploding API economy, combined with an advanced analytics market projected to reach $30 billion by 2019, is driving a market demand to expose more data from APIs. Business analysts, data engineers, and data scientists have been getting left behind in existing API strategies. This is because many APIs are designed to integrate with applications to extend functionality, however these data workers are looking for APIs that facilitate direct data access to support 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 in this $30 billion market.

OPEN Talk: How We Enabled off-eBay Shopping and Streamlined Selling at eBay
Public APIs are a big deal. They are intermediaries that enable applications to interact. Designing a set of interfaces that will meet business objectives, attract developers, and be long-lived is a technical challenge. After dealing with SOAP-based legacy APIs for years, we delivered new modern family of RESTful buy and sell public APIs which enable buyers to shop off-eBay and sellers to manage their business at scale. At eBay, our challenge was to create a vision for the new APIs, plan ahead, and deliver a stable contract that will last for years, even as we add business capabilities. Our API design is developer-centric and focused on exposing valuable solutions to empower third-party developers. APIs represent the consumer’s view of the functionalities. They are the front door to the portfolio of internal capabilities and have requirements tailored to external clients. This presentation outlines difficulties we faced and approaches we took to deliver new APIs and achieve consistency across capabilities.

As we increasingly interact with our devices, it's important for them to understand us better. Doing so will lead increased engagement and satisfaction with our digital experiences. This is Emotion AI -- the exciting new field that bridges human emotion detection and measurement with artificial intelligence. Designing APIs that understand this unique type of data set will become more and more important as the technology is adopted and becomes a part of our lives. Learn how emotional data is generated, packaged, and delivered, and how APIs are used to analyze and consume them.

Indecent API Exposure - How Much Data Should You Expose Through APIs
APIs are unlocking new opportunities across a broad range of industries seeking to add value to their products and services. But a successful API strategy requires striking a delicate balance: when should you expose proprietary and derived data through the API itself, and when does it benefit the business to offer differentiated datasets through higher value solutions? This decision should be front and center to your business’ API strategy. Developing APIs and exposing data in a piecemeal way undermines the business benefits APIs can deliver. In this session, Anuj will address key decision factors when it comes to how much to expose in APIs: -- What is the overall business objective? If the goal is to become a go-to third-party API and gain rapid category traction, it will drive a different decision than if you are delivering advanced predictive models through software to provide an enhanced service to customers. -- How diverse are your market segments? The depth of your API offering could change depending on your target markets and how they value your offering. -- What is your channel strategy? Your company’s overall channel strategy could influence the offerings sold through various channels.

CANCELLED: OPEN Talk: What Does it Take to Build and Run Blockchain Infrastructure?
Blockchains will disrupt much of today's financial, insurance, records, and identity systems. However, to build a blockchain application requires knowledge of everything from peer-to-peer networks, cryptography, consensus, protocols, hashing techniques, key management, mining, privacy, etc. Understanding and keeping up with ever-changing developments requires extremely specialized skills for developers and companies trying to build blockchain applications. Do you know what it takes to build and run a blockchain infrastructure platform? Come to this session to find out what it takes and why you may want to consider a blockchain API provider like BlockCypher. BlockCypher is a blockchain infrastructure company. BlockCypher enables companies building blockchain applications to do so easily via APIs and Blockchain Web Services (BWS). Companies can focus on their business applications while leaving the heavy lifting of running the entire blockchain infrastructure stack to BlockCypher.

Artificial Intelligence for Ecommerce - An API approach
Semantics3 is pioneering the use of Artificial Intelligence in ecommerce. We work with many Fortune 500 retailers on problems core to their ecommerce businesses. Our offer to retailers is simple - in order to compete on a level playing field with Amazon, they need to develop core tech strategies that keep up with Amazon's own tech strategy. We help these retailers fill this void through our AI APIs, which tackle problems like product enrichment, image generation, content generation, product classification and taxonomy. Efficiency-wise, we've managed to achieve human-levels of accuracy without a human-level cost margin. 
Our talk will explore some of the core business challenges that retailers face, and how AI APIs can help.

OPEN Talk: Securing APIs at Scale - A DevOps Approach
DevOps teams and API-first architecture have had a significant impact on the application development landscape. They have enabled organizations to speed up application development, easily use complex functionality, and enhance collaboration with service providers and customers. In fact, many enterprises derive an increasing amount of their revenue from APIs used by customers. However, scalable security solutions for APIs are notoriously elusive, even as DevOps faces increasing security demands. Thus, enterprises face a looming threat from under-protected APIs (underscored by the OWASP Top 10 2017update).

This talk will focus on enumerating this risk, discuss the challenges, and explore DevOps focused solutions. First, we will evaluate applications in the IoT, online retail and financial mobile spaces to highlight the complexity of managing the technical and business risk. Second, we examine the difficulty in securing these applications and examine why web scanners don’t work. Third, we present a scalable DevOps aligned testing framework, Peach API Security, to automate testing. Fourth, we discuss SDLCintegration for the framework. Finally, we will discuss real world results.

This talk will allow attendees to walk away with
+ Deeper understanding of business and technical risks around APIs
+ Enumerate real world challenges while highlighting weaknesses in current security tooling
+ Present scalable solutions for securing APIs to the benefit of DevOps teams

Ten Developer API Success Factors for your Developer Marketing and Developer Relations Program
Today more than 80% of developers belong to one or more developer programs. Sixty-two percent of developers, in a recent Evans Data Developer Program research survey, say they don’t use APIs that aren’t supported by a Developer Relations program. What motivates a developer to want to adopt a particular technology or tool?  What motivates them to buy?

The answers to these questions are crucial to the success of API marketing efforts. In order to sell a product, companies must be able to first, reach developers, second, provide a clear and unique message that emphasizes the particular value and functionality of their tool or platform, and finally, convince developers that these offerings can benefit them and/or the company they work for.  Knowing what the primary influences are in the developer world is critical.

There are many aspects related to a developer's API adoption and a company's decision to open their APIs to developers. These aspects can include: API features, Documentation, Developer Support, Reasons for joining and staying in a program, ROI and Developer Program Measurement, Developer Outreach, Training, Spurring Participation, Developer Resources, and App Stores.

In this API World session, you'll hear about the many aspects of successful API adoption, developer program features and developer marketing best practices that lead to a successful partnership between your company and developers.

KEYNOTE: Amanda Whaley, Director of Developer Experience, Cisco -- Building for the Real World - Where APIs Meet Infrastructure
The physical world is the next platform for developing applications. IoT, connected cities, wearables, network programmability — many of the newest developer opportunities live where apps are meeting infrastructure.

However, building a great developer experience around APIs that connect to the physical world creates unique challenges and opportunities. For instance:

- How do you quickly get to your first "hello world” when you need devices?
- How can APIs help you manage your infrastrucure at the pace and scale that modern app development demands?
- How do you build development teams that can work at the edge and in the cloud?

Join us to hear about the successes, challenges and lessons learned in applying developer experience best practices when APIs and the physical world meet, and how Cisco DevNet is helping developers build for these new opportunities.
