Join us, the Open API Initiative Meetup, for an evening of discussion and tech demos around API code generation tools, and more built with OpenAPI 3.0.

There will be a live stream, check back here closer to the event date for details.

• Erin McKean - IBM: Hear from IBM Lead Developer Advocate Erin McKean ( on "Selling OpenAPI: how to convince your team (and your manager!) to adopt the OpenAPI Spec"

OpenAPI is a fantastic tool for improving your team’s productivity in creating, testing, and consuming APIs—but not if you can’t get your team to use it! Learn how to sell your team on the OpenAPI spec, answer common questions, and reassure the anxious.

• Tim Burks - Google: "Taking API Code Generation to the next level with OpenAPI 3"

Lots of people love REST APIs, but writing code to call them is tedious, error-prone, and thankless. It would be great to eliminate this task from our to-do lists and lists of project risks. But people who’ve used code generators know that they rarely work well out-of-the-box. We'll talk about an effort that brings customization and distributed ownership to API code generation by building on the new OpenAPI 3.0 specification and years of experience with gRPC and Google's API Discovery Format.

• Aldo Bucchi - Mulesoft: "AMF (The API Modeling Framework)"

Will show a preview the API Modeling Framework (AMF), an open source project that provides a set of tools for enterprise scale API development and maintenance in OAS, RAML and other technologies.

• Shekhar Banerjee - eBay: Shekhar will share the OpenAPI Spec journey taken by eBay. Learn about why they chose OAS and steps it takes to get to adoption.

Entrance: Come in through the building lobby on Howard St. and up to the 4th floor. The building will be locked after 6pm, so you will be let in by a guard. Once upstairs, find an open computer in the lobby and complete the Launchpad guest registration and collect a name tag/badge.

If you have a bike, it must be brought in through the loading garage located on Beale Street.
