Kong is a lightweight, cloud-native API solution that makes it easier and faster than ever to connect APIs and microservices in today’s hybrid, multi-cloud environments. With its agnostic, flexible deployment approach, Kong can be used in today’s heterogeneous IT system landscapes to integrate a wide variety of data and systems – even across company boundaries – using APIs. In addition to REST APIs, Kong also offers support for gRPC and GraphQL, which broadens the possibilities to implement modern application architectures.
In this presentation, we will discuss deployment patterns and use cases for Kong to demonstrate the flexibility of the platform. Using a practical example, aspects of the API development and deployment process as well as the integration in existing software development processes will be discussed.
