Vice President of Products, Swagger
Tony Tam has been the driving force behind Swagger, the leading API description format used by developers in almost every modern programming language and deployment environment to design and deliver APIs that fuel IoT, microservices and mobile applications, since it began in 2011. During the development of Swagger, Tony served as the founder and CEO of Reverb, where he led development efforts of the site's innovative word navigation system. Swagger was created in response to a need his development team expressed for a better way to describe REST APIs. After making Swagger open source, Tony was the guiding force that moved the specification forward and created a vibrant enthusiastic community around it. Tony served Wordnik, the world's biggest online English dictionary, by number of words, as VP of Engineering and then CTO, among other roles.
