The State of the API Address

All About the API Specifications Conference
Matt is joined by Taylor (@taylor_atx) and Kin (@apievangelist) to talk about the API Specifications Conference (ASC). We talked about how the conference is shaping up, the kinds of talks they are hoping to put forward in the program, how it is organizing a conference under the Linux Foundation and how can you get involved with such an important, yet very niche, topic in our community.

The Swagger of OpenAPI
Sparked by this tweet, Matt and Mike have an informal chat about the whole Swagger to OpenAPI transition and why OpenAPI hasn't really been able to step away from the shadow of Swagger. We discuss ways communities members can help with pushing the OpenAPI naming over using Swagger, how SEO plays a fair bit into the whole thing and why naming things is just plain hard.

Sunsetting your API
Phil, Mike, and Matt get together for a discussion about how to safely sunset an API endpoint with the end goal being deprecation. We take a look at why its important to be overly communicative about it, what an appropriate length of time is from announcement to deprecation and how you can do it in a way that doesn't make your team or external consumers angry. We talk about the HTTP Sunset Header and the potential HTTP Deprecation Header and how those can make the process of knowing when APIs are being deprecated a lot smoother. We also looked at a few popular JS libraries and discuss how they deprecated themselves.

Secure your APIs or why so much data was available from Parler.
Phil, Mike and Matt sit down to talk about Parler and why their APIs were so great for hacktivists who wanted to make sure that the data was never lost. We talk about degraded services and circuit breakers, two big things that probably could have kept the data from being exposed as well as stripping files of EXIF data from uploaded images. We also venture into the topic of what is the role of service providers and social media going forward. Sponsors: Stoplight makes it possible for us to bring you this podcast while we nerd out about APIs. Check them out for their tooling around documentation with Studio, an app that makes API documentation an absolute joy to work with.

Developing platforms for developers - Harsha Reddy from Wayfair

We discuss how Wayfair empowers their developers to pick the right language for a job and then what kind of tools they employ to make their day to day lives at Wayfair easier.

Maybe GraphQL isn't so terrible? A conversation with Marc-Andre Giroux
A quick note before we get started: We recorded this episode back in April of 2020 when everyone was quarantining and making bread to post on instagram. Fast forward to now, in June, American cities, and cities around the world are joining in, protesting the systemic racism that has long been an issue in our societies. While our energy and focus turned to current events, editing this episode took a seat on the backburner. That said, we have it ready… but it couldn’t be released at a worse time. Three white dudes talking about APIs while our friends in other communities are fighting injustices that have long kept them down seems to be a bit tone deaf, and we know that, recognize that and commit ourselves to being involved. There are a lot of conversations we want to have around this topic both in the API world, and outside of it. We don’t want this episode to take away from the discussions going on around such important and heavy topics, but we hope this can serve as a way for you…

The API Handyman Cometh
Phil and Matt, both in a loose definition of isolation, find time to talk to Arnaud Lauret (https://twitter.com/apihandyman) and talk about API Design and Review. We discuss why you should spend time designing and reviewing your API and the process of reviewing API Designs before the code is written. We also ask Arnaud what he looks for while reviewing, the tools he uses to review API design docs and then Phil starts dreaming up what the ideal API Review tooling looks like. We also talk about life in quarantine, as France completely shut down and how Phil made it back in time to England before the lock downs took place.

200 OK Boomer
Phil, Mike and Matt talk about Matt's adventures with APIs returning 200 OK while having an error message in the body, causing extra work and frustration. We look at why this is a common thing in API development and what we can do to help people utilize the codes that are there instead of relying on 200 OK. Mike brings up Microsoft and what they are doing with their push to not only go Carbon Neutral but also Carbon Negative to make up for their past. We wonder what that will look like, and also bring up what an individual person with a developers salary can do to start helping out more since we (developers) can generally afford it over a lot of other people. Keeping on the environment, we also take look at some things a developer can do with code to help the environment, particularly around caching and responses.
