Details

We open at 6 pm and talks start at 6:30 pm. Feel free to come straight from work and skip dinner, food will be available :)

All talks will be in English. As suggested, we'll have shorter breaks between the talks.

Talks:

- Kyle Fuller (Apiary) - Resilient API Design

In this talk, we will explore what it takes to design a web service that can evolve over years leveraging hypermedia. We will learn how we can avoid the need for clients to be updated by decoupling the API from our business logic. Keeping the business logic where it belongs, on the server.

- Jaroslav Machaň (Česká spořitelna) - Boxing for the OpenAPI in the oldest Czech bank

What is it like to introduce agile development into the IT house where waterfall is standard for last decades? To communicate with community through twitter not newspapers? To release the first open-source internet banking in the world? We have many great stories behind our effort in making our bank an open, transparent public institution. We would really be happy to share it with you!

- Honza Javorek (Apiary) - Design APIs for humans and test what you promised

Whether you're creating a public interface of a library or an HTTP API, the challenge is still the same: How to make sure it won't be terrible to use? The answer is to follow the "design first" principle. Learn how open source tools like API Blueprint and Dredd, can help you to follow the principle when designing and implementing your HTTP API.
