Introduction to OpenAPI Spec & Lightning Talks
This is a free event, open to all. There will be some beers, tea, coffee, soft drinks, and food provided. We will have vegetarian food, if you have any other dietary requirements or questions please send us a message. _______________________________ ★ The talks ✩ Introduction to OpenAPI Spec Lorna Mitchell - Open API Specification is a machine and human readable way to describe APIs. From these specs we can generate documentation, create libraries, and ensure that our users know exactly what to expect from our APIs. This talk shows you around OAS from the beginning, showing how to create the specs and recommending some tools to help the process. Once you have the spec, things get interesting and this talk will showcase some of the things that you can offer once your API is described in this way. This session is recommended for writers looking to become more API-savvy and API engineers wanting to make their APIs more useful to their users. ✩ Lightning Talks Hugh Noble - Tom Wade - Talks TBA _______________________________ ★ Timings 18:30 – Turn up, have a drink, a snack, and a chat (food, soft drinks, beer, coffee) 19:00 – Lightning Talk 1 - Tom Wade 19:15 – Lightning Talk 2 - Hugh Noble 19:30 – A little break 19:35 – Introduction to OpenAPI Spec - Lorna Mitchell 20:10ish – Pop over to the pub for a chat and a drink _______________________________ ★ Sponsors Our sponsors make this monthly event possible, so please take the time to check them out, and thank them for their support. • Bruntwood - Platform ( – Platform is a reinvention of a Leeds landmark offering workspace for businesses of all sizes, right at the heart of the city.
