API Crafters,

Don't miss this presentation from Albert Tsang, co-founder & CTO of StrongLoop, and now Founder & CEO of LunchBadger.

Al is a true thought leader in microservices architecture and API design. In this talk, we'll learn how recent changes in architectural styles have changed the landscape of API Design:

• New challenges emerging from then need to reconcile competing design goals: internal, low-level microservices need isolation & focus, while client-facing APIs need to aggregate meaningful business data and processes.

• Strategies for organizing and partitioning fine-grained microservice APIs across different dimensions

• Optimizing deployment from consumption patterns

• Building APIs for engagement from granular microservices

• Applying CQRS, orchestration, mashup, containerization, and other modern design patterns to solve these problems.
