Microservices are a popular approach to software architecture that aim to break up monolithic code into maintainable chunks. These discrete chunks allow for continuous delivery of a service while developing on top of what is in production. That flexibility is exciting in an agile environment, but rushing into deploying your code as a suite of microservices can put you at risk of incorporating anti-patterns that may cause significant problems down the line. In this blog, Adam discusses four common pitfalls as you start building your own microservices.
Software design patterns are the solutions used to tackle common software development problems. Design Patterns aren’t strictly required for running code but they are essential to avoiding problems in your code. In this article, Adam takes a look at the other side – anti-patterns – a sneaky but common poor software development technique.
In his latest blog, Adam discusses the importance of continuous API documentation as your API collection grows (and likely becomes more complex).
In his latest article, Adam explores the role of the SRE as it relates to API strategy/design, and some of the advantages adopting this role brings to both APIs and business.
In his latest blog, Balaji discusses continuous access evaluation and how to validate token revocation when deploying this model.
In his latest blog, Adam discusses best practices for Continuous API Management , including several significant ways that drives change when the API is operating on cloud architecture. API management, whether on the cloud or off, comes down to discovery, documentation, monitoring, alerting, and authentication/security. How well you implement best practices in these areas will make or break your service. In this article, we’ll summarize several considerations for adapting to the cloud.
In his latest blog, Adam discusses how APIs are the building blocks of the distributed systems that run our world, and how they constantly move data from point to point. He then discusses different API technologies to provide solutions to different pain points in API data exchange.
Our API Academy quarterly TechTalk is April 28th at 9:00AM PDT/12:00PM EDT, and has Noname Security experts joining the API Academy team for what promises to be a most interesting discussion. Our team will be talking about API Security – not only from an API management perspective (i.e. locked down gateways, best practices, secured mobile apps) but also enterprise-wide API security tactics, as well as emerging threat vectors.
The latest blog from Adam covers the three primary categories of APIs (Single Implementation, Internal Utility, and External Extension) and when best to choose each.
