The Future API Stack for New Product Experiences
WHAT IS APIDAYS?
"The Future API Stack" will feature tracks around Identity & Security, API Lifecycle & Open API Spec, Service Mesh / Istio, Cloud Data Management & Integration & GraphQL.
APIdays is the leading industry tech & business series of conferences in APIs & the programmable economy.
Since 2002 & the Jeff Bezos mandate for APIs, we have seen many successful companies adopting APIs internally, like Amazon, Salesforce or Netflix. At the same time, since 2010, many startups who deliver APIs as their only product have become unicorns, like Stripe, Twilio, Sendgrid.
During this time, we have been using traditional REST architectures on the frontend & various old monolithic technologies on the backend. But the API stack is evolving so quickly that we are experiencing the mutation from an API-craft age to an API industrialization era.
APIdays SF is crafted around this API driven Software industrialization that is fundamentally changing the Software stack that we are using today, in order to enable new product experiences in our fast paced world. This is how it translates:
On the front end, new API query language like GraphQL
On the lifecycle management side, machine readable API description like OpenAPISpec
On the security side, OAuth 2.0, OpenID Connect & JSON WebTokens
On the loosely coupled architecture end, microservices, service meshes & Istio
On the delivery & orchestration side, containers & Kubernetes & Webassembly
On the messaging & streaming side, protocols like kafka & MQ technologies
