Business Ecosystems are booming, and APIs are the fuel
Clean APIs are more than just a nice way of connecting software. They are transforming the way businesses collaborate and compete; and they have a disruptive impact on the role of IT departments within companies. My ideas and a case study.

Api-First development. Motivation, benefits and an example using Swagger
What is API-First development, why does this matter, how can you introduce this in your own company and what are the techniques to get started ?

API Management systems, the good, the bad and the ugly
Ok, you have an API in mind, design looks good and you’re almost ready to get started. Should I start from scratch or do I take some time to look at an API Management system.
Will it help me or is it like ESB-vendor-tool-pushing all over again?

We hope to welcome all our API enthousiast in our first meetup !
