Event-based APIs are becoming more popular, enabling developers to craft new integrations and solutions that go beyond the original design of an API. But there remains a challenge: how can teams design thoughtful event-based APIs that are long-lasting, evolvable, and discoverable? In this talk, Higginbottom will dive into the design practices of event-based APIs, including tips for determining which protocol(s) you should select, which design patterns you should apply, and which anti-patterns you should avoid. He will also explain how AI and tools such as ChatGPT are starting to shape the next generation of APIs.
