Collaborative API Development: A Fintech Scenario

Real-World Scenario

During this seminar, a team of SmartBear API practitioners will take an API definition from the SWIFT developer portal and bring it through a full software development lifecycle utilising SmartBear API tooling. Along the way, the team will experience and overcome some of the most common challenges that modern API teams encounter.

During our 90-minute seminar, we will:

  • Enact real-life internal discussions
  • Establish the business requirements
  • Enforce API design standards to meet regulatory requirements
  • Use SwaggerHub to unlock the advantages of the API-first approach
  • Best practices for integrated API design and testing
  • Implement bi-directional API contract testing
  • Leverage API definitions for DevOps automation
  • Optimise application quality with automation & virtualization
  • Test basic application security
  • Run through deployment and version control
  • Post seminar project package download
  • Live Q&A
