PRESENTATION: Getting Started with OpenAPI

Map Link: (parking deck entrance, 600 building is due north of the deck)

Presentation by Matt Trask, Senior Architect for Primitive Social

It's been over 5 years since Swagger was handed over and turned into the OpenAPI Specification. However, people still get stuck on how to get started with building an API using the specification. This talk covers what OpenAPI does, how to get your team leads, managers, and above to
buy into using the specification, how to start with it, and breaks down the core concepts of the specification. If time permits, we will look at some deeper topics like the $ref key and how you can maintain large spec files with ease.

About Matt: Matt is an open source developer, senior architect, and cyclist. You can find him online hosting the "PHP Town Hall" and "APIs You Won't Hate" podcasts.

New Meeting Feature: Open Spaces! We're going to continue with a new discussion format among attendees. Please come with some questions or discussion topics in mind. The group will vote on suggestions and we'll cover things, based on interest, in a rotating panel style. Come share your expertise!

SPECIAL NOTE: Building security has become a bit more strict, so please do your best to arrive before 7pm. On arrival, you may need to mention that you are there to attend a meeting at ShootProof.
