In the past years, APIs became an essential part of modern web applications. API incorporated most of the stuff historically done on the server side - authentication and authorization, combining data sources, calling 3rd party services, etc. This puts a lot of pressure on API stability and scalability, yet we still need a sustainable pace for feature development. For a small team, it can be a challenging situation. Luckily there are tools which can make our life a little bit easier.
We will go through basic API Gateway setup and various interesting integrations with other services, including live demos.
