London Calling... REST APIs

Yesterday in London was the big day of Axway's API Workshop and Tech Lab. In the morning, we had excellent discussions led by Steve Craggs (@SteveCraggs) of Lustratus Research and Tim Haysom (@haysom_runner) of the GSMA. One of the themes was identity, in particular as related to Cloud identity and password security (or lack thereof...). We were then able to see standards such as OAuth 2.0 being used for "Sign in with Microsoft Live Connect" and "Sign in with Google" being enabled through the Axway API Gateway. 

In the afternoon was the hands-on Tech Lab portion, which you can see in action below (photo from my colleague Philipp Schone - @PhSchoene). In the Tech Lab, attendees could register APIs, connect up to the SalesForce API through the Axway API Gateway, and see API Management and monitoring in action. 


All in all, an excellent day. If you're in Sao Paolo next week, or in Berlin or Munich in June or July, I encourage you to come along to one of these events - it's a great opportunity to see API Management and security in action, and take part in some interesting discussions.
