These practices are well understood and practiced in mature application development teams and enterprises that have succeeded in accelerating time to market, improving quality and reducing costs. With new technologies and processes that have hit the market, these same benefits can now be delivered to API development teams. Attendees of this interactive session learn the concept of definition-driven development, details about Swagger and SwaggerHub, the secrets behind API virtualization and SmartBear’s ServiceV, as well as connecting definition and prototype to solicit rapid feedback and validation.
