Event-based APIs are becoming more popular, enabling developers to craft new integrations and solutions that go beyond the original design of an API. Yet, there remains a challenge: how can teams design thoughtful event-based APIs that are long-lasting, evolvable, and discoverable?
In this EDA Summit 2021 session, James Higginbotham from LaunchAny dives into the design practices of event-based APIs, including tips for determining which protocol(s) you should select, design patterns you should apply, and anti-patterns should you should avoid.
“The enterprise platform is starting to evolve… it’s going from REST APIs on top of a data store to having these robust solutions at the top,” says James Higginbotham. “EDA and AsyncAPIs are absolutely the backbone of how this is going to happen.”
