Building, documenting, and using APIs can be a complex process.

Using OpenAPI can make your process easier by creating documentation that can be used as a guide in building and consuming a service.

But since OpenAPI specs are easily consumable by code, your specs can also be used to automatically generate both service-side interfaces, as well as full clients.

Come to this session and see how adopting OpenAPI can make your API creation and consumption processes smoother.

You will learn:

  • The basics of OpenAPI
  • How to use OpenAPI to generate client-side code
  • How to use OpenAPI to generate server-side code
