Having a great API back end is central to many successful mobile apps – not only for the app itself, but for enabling other developers to integrate with your platform. Which technologies should you go for? Synchronous REST or Asynchronous WebSockets? JSON or XML? How do you maximize the usability of your APIs and make them as developer-friendly as possible and not lose track of performance and scalability at the same time? How about Hypermedia APIs and Metadata? And what about quality? How should you test and monitor your APIs? There are lots of questions and Ole Lensmar provides lots of useful information to answer the questions. This class clears some of the haze to help developers make the right decisions when building and evolving API solution.
Ole is the co-founder of eviware software, which joined forces with SmartBear in 2011, and the creator of SoapUI, the most used API testing tool in the world with seven million downloads. He speaks frequently on the importance of API testing and other software quality related topics. Follow Ole on Twitter @olensmar.
