Mike Amundsen’s talk from the API360 Summit in New York, June 2016 explores the cultural elements that have contributed to the most successful microservices implementations.
Erik Wilde’s talk from the API360 Summit in New York, June 2016 shows what the World Wide Web and Web technologies can teach us about microservices and microservice architecture.
Learn some best practices for designing APIs that will function optimally in microservice architectures Microservice architecture is helping an increasing number of organizations to minimize the time required for software application projects and to maximize the reliability of backend systems. In this lesson, we explain why APIs are essential to microservices and provide some best practices…
Matt McLarty’s introductory talk from the API360 Summit in New York, June 2016 compares the field of software engineering to the transportation industry at the start of the 20th century, likening microservices and Docker to the introduction of the automobile and the assembly line, respectively.

In this talk recorded at the API360 Microservices Summit in New York, June 2016, Jon Moore of Comcast examines techniques that can be used when dealing with partial system failures in a complex microservices environment.
This talk by Irakli Nadareishvili of ReferWell, recorded at the API360 Microservices Summit in New York, June 2016, examines some key areas that are critical but often overlooked when adopting microservices.
Ronnie Mitra’s talk from the API360 Summit in New York, June 2016 illustrates that the essence of microservice architecture is its ability to achieve delivery speed and system safety in harmony as implementations scale up.
The idea that good design is essential to building great products and services has become a truism in our industry. Most of us intuitively understand the idea that expending effort on the design of our code, system architecture and APIs will payoff after implementation. I’m certainly a big believer in the power of good design…
The API Academy’s Mike Amundsen is regularly asked which books he would recommend for those who want to learn more about designing, implementing and maintaining Web APIs.
