See What’s Coming Next for Swagger & OAS 3.0 at SmartBear Connect

  July 11, 2017

SmartBear Connect is a user conference that brings together experts from across the world of software quality, and Swagger-based API development. All things Swagger, API Design & Documentation, and OAS 3.0 will be a main focus for the event. Meet API experts in development, testing, and business strategy to discuss real-world problems, strategies, and emerging solutions in the API development and software quality space.

As the company beyond behind the open source Swagger tooling, we are making sure Swagger has a major presence during SmartBear Connect. The conference comes to Boston September 12-13. This jam-packed event will bring together the world’s testing, development, and technology communities for:

  • Interactive product training classes
  • Discussions with industry experts on the latest trends in API design, API quality, and software testing
  • Unique insights and stories from Swagger & SwaggerHub customers

The team has been busy building the agenda for SmartBear Connect. Today I want to share the day one and day two agendas for Swagger & SwaggerHub users:

Day 1: Training Workshops & Certification

Day one is all about providing hands-on trainings, focused on Swagger and the OpenAPI specification. There will be seven interactive training sessions with various "check your knowledge" questions after each session. All attendees will receive a  SmartBear Connect Swagger Certificate at the end of day one.

Trainings will be presented by Swagger Trainer, Chris Riley.
