Earlier this week, APIStrat published the program schedule for API Strategy and Practice, to be held in Boston 2 - 4 November.
The API Strategy and Practice program has now been published on the event's website and covers the majority of keynotes, workshops and session streams planned for the premier API conference of the year.
This year's program will unpack some of the key trends facing business and industry adoption of APIs and share groundbreaking new technological approaches. APIStrat's 2016 schedule demonstrates how APIStrat can serve as both the ideal entry point for newcomers, as well as push the envelope for industry pioneers looking to the next frontier.
"I'm really excited by this year's program," said Lorinda Brandon, of Capital One DevExchange and this year's APIStrat Program Chair. "Every year I hear participants say that the most difficult thing about APIStrat is deciding which session tracks to attend, as there is always so much great content. So I'm really proud that our Program Committee and organizing team has made this year's choices tougher than ever!"
Brandon credits the Session Chairs in particular – each one an industry thought leader in their specific field. "Our Session Chairs have helped shape a program that will provide newcomers with an overview of key API topics, including API design, developer relations, security, and enterprise API usage. They have also invited speakers for each of their sessions that are the cutting edge of where we are headed next, so it is a great mix of bringing everyone up to date and pushing all forward to do our best."
This year's program includes:
"APIStrat is successful because it is made up of an impressive lineup of speakers and an equally vibrant, engaged community of attendees,” said APIStrat co-organizer, Steven Willmott, Senior Director and Head of API Infrastructure at Red Hat. “We are excited by our Boston program as it will bring together world-class presentations with our engaged and community-driven audience."
"Seeing the program come together this year has been an inspiration," said co-organizer API Evangelist, Kin Lane. "It reflects many of the conversations I have every day with practitioners in business, government and startups who are looking for ways to use APIs to strengthen connections and to encourage a new model of co-creation and engagement between service users and service producers."
