About the Book

Roy Fielding once describe REST as “software design on the scale of decades: every detail is intended to promote software longevity and independent evolution. Many of the constraints are directly opposed to short-term efficiency.” Essentially, he acknowledged how developers often execute short term design without long-term design in mind, which causes inadaptability as technology evolves. 

In October 2016 Nordic APIs will be holding it’s annual Platform Summit centered on this theme, bringing together API industry thought leaders to share their insights on what it means to architect and design Application Programming Interfaces on the scale of decades. The event will especially detail RESTful design techniques for longevity, operational components of sustaining an API, and topics like DevOps, microservices architectures, developer relations, and new business methodologies for keeping your platform aware, stable, and innovative.

The Art of API Practice will gather the best information shared by speakers at the Platform Summit - so even if you can’t afford to attend, you can catch a part of the experience! We’ll feature articles by our speakers, highlight recurring conference themes, and explore what longevity means from the perspective of 6 the Nordic APIs Insights; API Design, API Platforms, API Strategy, API Design, API Marketing, and API Security.
