When implementing management and governance of API landscapes, the goal is to establish coherence across the landscape so designers and producers can more easily reuse design pattern and tooling, and API consumers can more easily understand APIs because they share design principles and building blocks. And in EDA environments, the boundaries between APIs are blurry anyways because event brokers are part of the landscape.

In this talk, Wilde will introduce CloudEvents and explain how it can help by establishing a vocabulary and representations for describing event data across events and event producers. He’ll discuss the standard itself and the most important vocabulary terms.
