API Academy Delivers Free Customized API Education by Industry Authorities

Online, virtual, and in-person training will deliver foundational and cutting-edge API lifecycle management, microservices, and digital transformation education to help organizations build skills and excel in the application economy. 

API Academy, the industry authority for API management thought leadership, is providing a full spectrum of online instructor-led web-based, and in-person API management and microservices training free of charge. In addition, the site now offers an enhanced menu of topical and educational content provided by industry thought leaders. API Academy was acquired by Broadcom as part of their acquisition of CA Technologies in November 2018.

In 2011, API Academy was created to address the need for a core set of best practices in API strategy and design, regardless of the API platform. These best practices allow enterprises to better manage their APIs and decrease time to market while increasing efficiencies (and thus, ROI) in their digital transformation initiatives. Through a series of workshops, API Academy brought these best practices to the field to help educate Enterprise/Security Architects, developers, and business leaders.  In order to scale this educational process, API Academy is introducing new offerings: 

  • The first independent education and certification program for API strategy and design, with personalized self-paced courses for API Designers, API Security Architects, and API Product Managers, free of charge.
  • New website capabilities including a robust “how to” glossary which answers frequently asked questions and demonstrates best practices for common tasks. The site also includes a regular content cadence including contributions by industry thought leaders from both inside and outside Broadcom. 
  • Complimentary virtual and worldwide in-person training in conjunction with APIdays – attendees will learn API management and strategy and get in-person support in this world wide education tour, which will now be delivered both virtually and in-person starting in the Fall. 

 “API Academy has long been recognized as an industry leader for best practices for API strategy and design. These new capabilities help enterprises implement proven techniques for better efficiencies and ROI for their API strategy, driving towards their digital success.” said Sushil Kumar, head of DevOps, Enterprise Software Division, Broadcom.
