The latest trends in application programming interfaces (APIs) make it possible to share data more easily than ever before. In this session, we'll take a look at the OpenAPI Project (formerly known as Swagger). We'll start with a brief discussion of the OpenAPI approach, then we'll look at free tools and software to help you get started. From there, we'll go through a quick demo of describing an API and looking at code that uses the API to both serve data and consume it. We'll also take a quick look at open technologies to share data sets and the code that produces them so that anyone can replicate your results. We'll wrap up with a discussion of the API economy and ways to publicize and manage your the APIs you create. The speaker is Doug Tidwell of IBM.
