Session: How To Design and build scalable APIs and Why it Matters
APIs are the core mechanism for Decoupling front ends from back ends and for decomposing monolithic infrastructures into composable enterprises. APIs enable teams to focus on their core value proposition while allowing customers to achieve bigger goals by connecting to data and functionality with tools they prefer to use. But to deliver on these myriad benefits and objectives, teams must design APIs with scale in mind. APIs that are built without scale as a consideration will suffer from poor usability, have limited availability, are open to security issues, and more. Hence, there is need to design and develop high-quality and scalable API.
- Scalability is the way forward.
- API documentation is extremely useful
- API design decisions on performance are real and permanent.
