Introduction to APIs Workshop

This one-day event will get you on the path to designing, developing and deploying APIs in order to help your business thrive and grow. We will teach you and other stakeholders how to draw up a plan for success, covering all the key areas that must be addressed.

At the end of this engagement, you will be educated in API business and technology, as well as in a methodology for successfully launching your own APIs. Armed with this knowledge, you will be ready to benefit from the new opportunities presented by APIs.

API Design & Architecture Boot Camp

Building scalable, secure, flexible APIs is not trivial. The API Academy’s Design & Architecture Boot Camp will provide your developers with a crash course in key development, security, management and accessibility concepts, in a convenient, onsite format.

Delivered by recognized industry experts, the API Design & Architecture Boot Camp will ensure that your whole development team is current on the latest design and architecture concepts, improving effectiveness while reducing risk.

API Strategy Consulting Services

Through a series of online meetings and onsite workshops, the API Academy’s Strategy Consulting Services will provide you with the business use cases and developer onboarding strategies you need in order to build a successful API publishing program.

Based on their extensive market research and hands-on experience in the app developer community, the API Academy's experts will help you to define your API strategy, sell it internally and identify the correct metrics for measuring the results.
