In a world increasingly connected with APIs, applications rely on each other to operate. With the continuous demand to always go faster, businesses and customers are expecting everything to be real-time. But, in this highly connected world, a “slow” API in the digital supply chain may make the whole internal production or business workflow fail, or not deliver the expected customer experience. How can we build reliable and fast real-time architecture? What monitoring best practices do you need to apply to achieve speed and guarantee safety at the same time? What paradigm do you need to understand to transition to an Event-Driven architecture?

In our next APIscene webinar, we will discuss why API performance is critical and needs to be addressed on both the technical and business sides; how can we address it internally; and what do we need to build to make it real.

This webinar will feature Mike Amundsen, author of many books on APIs and including API Traffic Management (O’Reilly) who will present his best practices and recommendations about managing the traffic of your APIs to ensure speed and safety at scale.

We will also be joined by Kevin Jones, Senior Product Manager at NGINX, who is an expert on delivering fast and reliable architecture with the NGINX API gateway. He will share how to build real time APIs infrastructure with NGINX.

The webinar will be moderated by Mehdi Medjaoui, founder f APIdays conferences and co-author of Continuous API management (O’Reilly).
