“APIStrat events always impress me with the quality of insight from speakers as the API world is moving fast and seeing best practices from so many companies and individuals is extremely valuable,” said Steve Willmott, CEO of 3Scale.
Kin Lane, of API Evangelist adds: “After five years of working in the space, APIStrat is the place where the community gathers to have the important conversations that move the API economy forward. In 2015 it is not just about REST and API management, so make sure you are present, and are in the know.”
For this edition, the event has expanded the team to reach greater heights and has added Mark Boyd as the program chair and Keith Casey of as the local event chair.
Mark is veteran journalist in the API field writing for ProgrammableWeb and The New Stack: “As a writer documenting best practice examples and new knowledge in the API economy, I have always appreciated API Strategy & Practice as a great source for new contacts, emerging ideas and proven examples of how APIs are making a difference to businesses and communities. As program chair, I'm looking forward to adding to the successes of APIStrat's previous conferences by helping build an exciting program that highlights both leading API experts and practitioners.”
Keith Casey, one of the organizers of the Austin API Meetup http://austinapi.com/, said, "APIStrat is one of the few events where the doers, planners and thinkers come together and discuss the ideas and technologies that are driving us forward. Time and time again, five minute conversations and 30 minute sessions have saved us weeks of development."
