NYOUG 2019 Summer Meeting: Dev 2.0: Living in the World of APIs

Dev 2.0: Living in the World of APIs

Historical trends of the last decade lead to a paradox: · In search of optimization our solutions represent a group of independent modules communicating via various APIs. · The overall number of various problems increased significantly in relation to the period of monolithic implementations. · The overall time to solve any serious problem skyrocketed because about 90% of it is consumed by finger-pointing. This presentation explains how you can survive in the world of APIs using a real application example where an Oracle-based system is constantly in-touch with a JSON-based system. The presentation describes a number of production use-cases that have been resolved by our team of developers – and the majority of applied solutions required only some pretty simple changes. However, finding WHAT to change is THE million-dollar question (quite literally!).
