We wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who made @APIStrat Chicago such a success. Thank you to our sponsors, speakers, and to the 3Scale API Infrastructure team.

As APIStrat Chicago Kicks Off, APIStrat Europe And US for 2015 are In The Works - We Want Your Input! 09-24-2014

Attendees are deep in workshops on the first day if this year’s APIStrat and it’s going to be an awesome event! So many great speakers, sponsors and attendees talking APIs. After the fourth event we’re stoked at the community support and the great conversations that happen, so we’re happy to announce first of all the next APIStrat in Europe which will be in held in Berlin, Germany in late April or early May - dates to follow! Secondly, we’re also announcing a community call for input on where to host next year’s fall APIStrat 2015! We’ve had loads of location suggestions and we’d love to figure out the places people would really like the next event run! So we’re requesting proposals and ideas on where to go + thoughts on how to make it awesome in that city. All we need is an email to [email protected] entitled “APIStrat 2015” letting us know: The location you’d like to see the event in! Some info on the strength of the local API community. Suggestions of local folks who could help us organize on the ground. Suggestions of great venues [for around 500 people or up to 1000], with great space to hang out and work/chat. Any notable dates of local events to hook up with in the Oct/Nov timeframe. Any great local notable speakers we should consider! All this would help a huge amount so if you’d like to see APIStrat close to you next year speak up and let us know - email us by the 21st of October this year! It’s not a formal bid and you’re not making any commitments but it would be great to get thoughts and interest! Looking forward to an awesome event! Read more

Open source software has become an important foundation for every aspect of the technology that supports the Internet, and as the API economy evolves, we need to begin to look at open models for designing, deploying, and managing APIs. The terms "open" is thrown around a lot in API space a lot, but there is a lot more "open" going on than just using the word in marketing materials. Read more

APIs, Data and Adaptive Intelligence In Chicago Next Week 09-15-2014

We hear a lot of discussion about big data, and how the intelligence derived from it is helping companies across many business sectors in 2014. At the heart of this conversation are APIs, which provide the pipes for which this data travels, but also allow it to be abstracted, analyzed and ultimately made sense of, delivering the potential value everyone is discussing.

StrongLoop, Keen IO,, Webshell, and @APIStrat 09-08-2014

In the early days of APIs, the concept of the API mashup was hugely popular, where a developer would take two or more APIs and mash them up into a single web application, and eventually into mobile apps. ProgrammableWeb still tracks on mashups, and which APIs they consume, as a metric for which APIs are the most used across the space. Read more
