Definition Driven API Development: How OAS & Swagger Help Teams Streamline Their API Development

Definition Driven API Development: How OAS & Swagger Help Teams Streamline Their API Development

We recently held a free training on API development with OpenAPI Specification and Swagger tools: Definition-Driven API Development: How OAS & Swagger Help Teams Streamline Their API Development. 

The OpenAPI Specification (formerly known as the Swagger Specification) has emerged as the world’s standard for defining RESTful interfaces at a time when the API economy is ripe for disruption. In this webinar, we discussed exactly why and how to use the OpenAPI Specification to accelerate your API development in various phases of the API lifecycle including API design, development, documentation, testing and virtualization.

We cover trends in the API landscape that have led to the adoption of API definitions, like OpenAPI, and look at real-world examples of how API teams are using definitions to address challenges at each of the different phases of the lifecycle of their APIs. And finally, we walk through a live demo showing tools like Swagger Inspector for generating API definitions, SwaggerHub for designing, documenting, and developing your APIs, and SoapUI and ServiceV for testing and virtualizing your API.

Streamline Your API Development with OAS & Swagger

As the team behind some of the most widely used tools for designing, documenting, and developing APIs with the OpenAPI Specification — including the open source Swagger Editor, Swagger UI, and Swagger Codegen, as well as pro tools like SwaggerHub and Swagger Inspector — we’ve learned firsthand about the opportunities and challenges facing teams developing APIs with OAS.
