Design APIs that are ready for the age of connected smart devices

Design APIs that are ready for the age of connected smart devices

 

The Internet of Things (IoT) is connecting all manner of devices – from TVs, to utilities meters, to cars and beyond. It has been said that, in the age of IoT, everything with an identity will have an API and everything with an API will have an identity.

In this interactive online session, originally broadcast live as part of the Layer 7 API Tech Talk series, guest expert Holger Reinhardt discusses how the ubiquity of APIs in the IoT age will affect API design best practices.

Viewer questions answered in this Tech Talk include:

  • How will IoT be used to manage supply and fulfillment models among complex networks of suppliers and providers?
  • Is it possible to design a scalable API taking into account all the possible states of a device, as influenced by the states of the other devices connected to it?
