The Dangers of API Design

APIs are an interesting topic, especially from a security perspective. Consider what an API is designed to enable. An application can communicate and exchange data with another application, including over the public Internet. By its very nature, an API must be publicly accessible. This makes APIs especially vulnerable to attack.

Quo Vadis, API Management? Developments in API Management

Over the last 20 years, API management has developed dynamically. You could go back even further in the history of “computing” and end up in the late 1960s, where the term “application program interface” first appeared in literature. But let's limit ourselves to the more recent past, where the discussion is still interesting and enlightening.

REST APIs: Stop Polling, Let’s Go Streaming

REST APIs have become the dominant means for distributed applications to communicate over the last ten or fifteen years, whether that is client-server such as mobile applications, web clients, or server-server between monoliths and microservices. However, the way REST works and increasing demands on how the REST paradigm works has seen the idea and frameworks around REST-based web services evolve, including the adoption of the idea of streaming. Streamsing represents the data source's ability to continuously send to the client data, just as we do with video and audio media, rather than request-reply. We will look at why we should consider it as part of our kit bag of technical options, how streaming works, the considerations needed in adopting the approach, and the frameworks that have supported and helped its adoption.
