Over the previous few months, you will have seen a number of bulletins that exhibit how Cisco’s dedication to delivering nice developer experiences. From backwards compatibility for APIs to standardizing on the OpenAPI specification, these are simply two methods we’re driving this effort.
Right here is a few background on Cisco’s API First and High quality efforts:
API-First and API High quality at Cisco
As we started sharing our journey to API-First and API High quality with OpenAPI at Cisco Stay Las Vegas final June, we noticed quite a lot of curiosity from the DevNet neighborhood that makes use of Cisco APIs to automate, scale, and safe their infrastructure.
As well as, at current API trade occasions – ASC/OpenAPI Convention, API World and API Days – we met with technical leads, devops engineers, and compliance officers who face related challenges: ship top quality APIs? measure the standard of API contracts? and achieve visibility into new API releases?
Why API Contracts Matte
I’m thrilled to be again in Amsterdam subsequent week. Please see under for the numerous alternatives to community with different API practitioners.
Beginning Monday morning, February sixth, Cisco Meraki, Nexus and ISE engineering teams will take part in a panel to share greatest practices and classes realized from their API-First journeys.
And, all through alongside the week, be a part of us within the DevNet Zone for a preview of the subsequent launch of API Insights, the homegrown opensource toolset supporting Cisco’s journey to standardized APIs.
What are you able to anticipate at Cisco Stay Amsterdam?
Listed here are among the alternatives to be taught extra about current and new bulletins, but additionally to get a deep dive into the method and instruments used at Cisco on this API High quality journey.
