10-29-2014We 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. Without all of these people working together, the open conversation about the API space, that is @APIStrat would never happen.
09-25-2014Today's been a long and fun day at APIStrat! We've officially kicked our 2014 conference this morning with keynotes from Julia Ferraioli, Joshua Greenough and Andrew Nacin. We've had some mind blowing moments and a bit of API psychology:
09-24-2014Attendees are deep in workshops on the first day if this years APIStrat and its going to be an awesome event! So many great speakers, sponsors and attendees talking APIs. After the fourth event were stoked at the community support and the great conversations that happen, so were 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, were also announcing a community call for input on where to host next years fall APIStrat 2015! Weve had loads of location suggestions and wed love to figure out the places people would really like the next event run! So were 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 youd 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 youd like to see APIStrat close to you next year speak up and let us know - email us by the 21st of October this year! Its not a formal bid and youre not making any commitments but it would be great to get thoughts and interest! Looking forward to an awesome event!
09-19-2014APIs are changing the way business is done, and startups are often at the forefront of that change. Were lucky to have two experienced investors taking the stage at APIStrat for the Investor Fireside chat to dig down into how startups can leverage APIs to disrupt and how APIs affect their investment decisions.
09-17-2014Open 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.
09-15-2014We 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.
09-14-2014One of APIStrats main goals is to allow as many people as possible to benefit from the unique discussions, experiences, and insights shared through our conference series. In order for as many people as possible to join us for the 2014 U.S. edition in Chicago, we have a 2-for-1 ticket deal for full conference passes, available through Friday.

09-11-2014There are many challenges API providers face when designing, deploying, and managing their APIs, and some of the most difficult ones go beyond just the technical, including important aspects of API operations like terms of service, privacy, security, and even the pricing, or the monetization strategy of an API platform.
09-08-2014In 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.
09-03-2014Hey! In case you havent heard, there are a couple of deadlines coming up fast. This Friday is the last day to
08-25-2014I am super stoked to announce that we have Andrew Nacin (@nacin), the lead developer from WordPress keynoting API Strategy & Practice in Chicago next month. We are looking to continue the conversation around an official WordPress API, scheduled for inclusion in the WordPress 4.1 release.
