Application developers are the customers of your API. Success is measured by how quickly those developers enjoy success using your API in their applications. And rapid adoption of an API by your internal, partner, or external developers is all about design. In this webcast, Apigee's Marsh Gardiner and Brian Mulloy build upon their prior work in API design and unveil RV, a style of API design that embraces developer adoption as its guiding principle.
IT architects and developers have long recognized APIs as an evolution and continuation of integration-based architectures used within enterprise IT. But this is a limited view. APIs have become the foundational framework for development of scalable enterprise applications that connect user experiences to back-end data and services.
How can you extend the programmability of your API infrastructure, solve orchestration problems, and build in complex logic? Combine Apigee Edge, which is built for the API-first approach, with node.js, the popular framework that runs natively on the Apigee platform. In this webcast, Apigee’s Greg Brail and Rakesh Saha discussed using node.js with Apigee Edge to build multi-channel apps and APIs. They also discussed the rationale for using node.js, multi-channel app use cases, and how to use node.js to build complex logic in your API tier.
Although APIs and SOA share similarities, they're designed for very different use cases. In this webcast, Ed Anuff and Dilshad Simons discuss the fundamental differences between API and SOA governance, how API consumption is different from service exposure, and how a good design pattern at the SOA tier is an anti-pattern at the API tier, and vice versa.
Interested in building and deploying apps using node.js? In this webcast, Apigee's Greg Brail and Scott Ganyodiscuss how node.js works, how it can be used to extend the programmability of the Apigee platform, and how to use this popular third-party framework to build apps and solve API orchestration and transformation problems.
In this webcast, API Design: Third Edition, our hosts drew upon the discussions and implementations with hundreds of crafters and technologists that have helped further shape their API design thinking in the 12 months since the previous edition of RESTful API Design.
In this webcast: The New Three Tier Architecture: HTML5, Proxies & APIs, @landlessness and @kevinswiber discussed the 3-tier architecture of presentation, logic and data and the technologies that underlay these tiers, which power the mobile web. Behind the logic and presentation layers, the data tier is traditionally driven by relational databases. Today, with rich APIs available for developers to store application data, a traditional RDB is often not used by modern apps.
